Assemblymember Holden Accepting Applications for 2024 Young Legislators Program
Assemblymember Chris Holden is now accepting applications for the 2024 Young Legislators Program. Now in its ninth year, the Young Legislators Program offers high school seniors in the 41st Assembly District a front row seat to the public policy and political arena.
“Young Legislators was an amazing program to be a part of. Gaining insight into the world of government functions, all while making new friends along the way easily made it an amazing experience to have. Anyone interested in government or curious about how our cities and state remain operating would enjoy Young Legislators just as much as I did,” said Evan Lyons, 2023 graduate.
During the five-month program, students will meet once a month at a selected venue to learn about the legislative process, public policy and quality of life issues that impact the lives of Californians and further develop their leadership skills.
“I enjoy this time of the year because we get to work with passionate students from across my district,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “I have no doubt this year’s program will again have a lasting impact on the students, and I look forward to meeting the 2024 Young Legislators.”
“I loved learning about the role and importance of both local government and agencies that work to serve their communities,” said Bess Brandow, 2019 graduate.
“The entire program was phenomenal! It strengthened my passion for politics and has made me become more engaged to further follow what I believe in,” said Osvaldo Valdiviezo who participated in the 2018 Young Legislators Program. “Also the friendships and memories I made are something I treasure and am grateful for.”
Applicants must commit to five monthly, Saturday meetings starting in January 2024 and submit applications by December 5, 2023. Click here for program details and application.
