The Cape Ann YMCA Youth in Government students Kaiti Maddox, Erika French, Curtis Brauner, Yishai Barth, Thomas Mortillaro, Peter Murray and Connor Hawkins met at Springfield College recently with other groups. Youth in Government uses the YMCA core values of "Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility" to teach teens in grades 9-12 how they can participate in the democratic process. Participants have opportunities to develop skills, make friends and learn how they can make a difference. The program culminates in March with a three-day mock-government immersion program at the Massachusetts State House.
