This class will prep the students for having a great experience at KYA in the Fall of 2012.
What is KYA you ask???
The Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA) is a Youth in Government program designed to provide hands-on experience in the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government. The overall goal of the conference is to teach the mechanics of government and to impress upon students the importance of active participation to the success of a democracy. Fundamentally KYA exists because Democracy must be learned by each generation. For three days, students play the various roles integral to the operation of a state government, including state representative, senator, member of the press, Supreme Court justice, Governor, and more. Each of these roles has specific and important functions without which the conference could not function.
