The CYV staff are happy to help guide you through the process if you have questions on how to register. Youth in Government registration is done by delegation.
Are you new to YIG? Do you have questions? Get in touch with the nearest Youth in Government Delegation Director or contact the CYV State Office.
Parents and guardians: The process begins with you. Continue below to register your student for Youth in Government 2022. After completion, you or your student may receive an email stating that there are further steps; please kindly disregard. That email message is outdated and cannot be updated. Once this step is completed, your student is fully registered for Youth in Government 2022. Thank you!
Before beginning registration, please gather the following:
Credit Card – You will need to pay a deposit via credit card. If other accommodations need to be made, please contact your Delegation Director.
Delegation Name – The YMCA or school that your student is a participant with.
Student's Program Area Preferences – During this step of the process, you will select your student's program area preferences for the conference. Please be sure to communicate with them on their top three choices. Program Area descriptions are available in the YIG Brochure.
Student's Email – This must be unique and different from your email or any other student's email otherwise their registration WILL NOT WORK. The State Office only communicates with students about YIG-related matters. Student email addresses are never shared outside the YMCA.
