Assemblymember Holden accepting applications for Young Legislators program
Assemblymember Chris Holden (AD–41) recently announced the availability of applications for the 2017 Young Legislators Program.
The Young Legislators Program is a six-month, no-cost program that provides selected students from the 41st Assembly District an opportunity to learn about the legislative process, services provided to constituents by elected leaders and the relationship between local and state governments.
Students will meet at selected sites in the 41st district for the first five sessions, and conclude with a two-day session in northern California.
Last year’s final session involved a tour of the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, followed by a panel discussion with members of Facebook’s government affairs team. Day two brought the students to the California State Capitol where they toured the building, met Assemblymember Holden and sat in on a Senate Education Committee hearing.
The program is open to high school seniors living in the 41st Assembly District. Applicants must commit to monthly Saturday meetings starting in January 2017 and submit applications by October 20. Details and applications are available online at asmdc.org/members/a41/other-resources/young-legislators-program.
