Whereas, forty-five states have successful Youth in Government programs; and

Whereas, the purpose of the Young Men's Christian Association's Youth in Government program is to encourage our youth to develop enthusiasm and appreciation for government and community affairs; and
Whereas, more than one thousand, two hundred high school students in the State are expected to participate this year, making the South Carolina Youth in Government program the largest per-capita in the nation. Now, therefore,
