Center for Best Practices
As part of the Youth Governors Association, each Youth Governor will select one of 5 divisions of the YGA Center for Best Practices, modeled on the NGA’s Center for Best Practices
to increase opportunities for collaboration/mentoring:
1. Economic Opportunity
3. Energy, Infrastructure, & Environment
5. Homeland Security & Public Safety
As part of their on-boarding process, incoming Youth Governors will rank these 5 divisions in order of preference. Youth Governors will be placed into their preferred division, which will also act as their family group, building a foundation for year-long collaboration.
Each division/family will also be assigned a YMCA staff member and collegiate volunteer from our existing Youth Governors Conference Planning Team as chaperones and mentors.
