The 32nd Assembly District Office offers high school students a unique opportunity to gain an understanding of state government and the legislative process. The program requires attendance of monthly sessions featuring guest speakers and field trips with a focus on specific topics such as government, business, agriculture, medicine, and law enforcement.
In addition, participants are expected to work together to track a state bill through the legislative process in order to gain a firsthand experience of how our government functions.
The program culminates in a trip to our State Capitol in Sacramento where participants will visit the Assembly floor.
The program is available to high school students in 11th or 12th grade. Depending on their high school, students may also receive different types of school credits for participating.
The Young Assemblymember Program is an invaluable way to gain a true understanding of California's democratic process, as well as an excellent opportunity to make important contacts while serving the community.
