SAVE THE DATE!

February 28, 2024

Legislative Day is our annual event focused on giving youth an opportunity to learn about the state government. This event gives youth from around the state the opportunity to meet with local legislators to share their experiences in the Jobs for Michigan's Graduates (JMG) program and advocate for their communities. This year, Legislative Day was held in Lansing on February 22.

Legislative meetings are a premier opportunity for Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG) youth to tell their story, voice their opinion, and practice the success skills they have been learning through JMG. For many JMG youth, this was an empowering first experience speaking to their local elected officials, providing them with the opportunity to make their voice heard.

Legislative day was an empowering and meaningful experience. It made me feel like I had the potential to leave a positive impact on the community when I didn't before. It was a wonderful day!

I enjoyed meeting with Mr. Burns, Chief of Staff for Senator McBroom. The discussions were informative and constructive.
