Here’s a thought: Why not consider the actual future to lead us into the future? Youth & Government, a national program of the YMCA, provides the training grounds for impassioned middle and high school students to do just that. The wholly immersive experience tasks young participants with establishing and simulating every facet of their state government—deciding court cases, passing budgets, debating legislation, and even running for office. THE YOUTH GOVERNOR follows California’s Y&G program of 4,000 bright leaders and their heated race for the state’s 72nd Youth Governor. The field begins with six candidates, and it is up to their campaign staff to help define unique platforms and strategies to win the votes of their constituents. The grueling campaign trail forces candidates to learn more about their own ideologies when faced with opposing views and reveals refreshing examples of genuine collaboration across party lines. But are shady politics inevitable to pull off a win? Hopeful and inspiring, this political race is one you will actually want to watch. —A.B.
