Applications Sought for 49th Youth Legislative Assembly

Raleigh, N.C. – Senator Chuck Edwards invites District 48 high school students to apply for the 49th Annual Youth Legislative Assembly (YLA).

The Youth Legislative Assembly is a mock legislative session where high school students voice their opinions and vote on issues concerning local, state and national government. The three-day session is patterned after the NC General Assembly. At the conclusion of YLA, a final report is drafted and distributed to the governor and legislators. North Carolina’s YLA offers students a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about the legislative process and to develop leadership skills that will help them succeed in life. We are proud to continue this long tradition of helping prepare our state’s future leaders.

The Legislative Services Office, under the North Carolina General Assembly, is now accepting applications for the conference to be held April 12 - 14, 2019, in Raleigh. Applications will be accepted through January 13, 2019.

YLA provides the opportunity for North Carolina’s youth to engage with peers from across the state in a structured, positive, youth-focused environment. The YLA program is open to students in North Carolina who are in good standing at a public, private, charter or home school.
