Black Youth Leadership Project, Inc., Presents
The 12th Annual Legislative Open House
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2011
8:30 AM TO 5:00 PM
The Black Youth Leadership Project, Inc. is hosting a one-day Open House geared toward African-American high school students interested in California politics, public policy, civics, governmental service, and/or community service. Students will participate with Capitol staff in mock committee hearings and a legislative floor session, passing laws that are important to them. The purpose of the Open House is to encourage African-American students in grades 9-12 to regularly interact with their state’s political and community leaders and to use this opportunity to discuss the legislative process, timely policy concerns, and the role of democracy and advocacy within our communities.
