Applications are being accepted for the 48th Annual Youth Legislative Assembly in Raleigh

The North Carolina General Assembly invite North Carolina High School students to apply for the 48th annual Youth Legislative Assembly! The deadline to submit applications is December 11, 2017.  The conference will be held April 6-8, 2018 in Raleigh.

“North Carolina’s Youth Legislative Assembly offers students a unique opportunity to learn firsthand about the legislative process and to develop leadership skills that will help them succeed in life,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore. “We are proud to continue this long tradition of helping prepare our state’s future leaders.”

"Youth Legislative Assembly (YLA) 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.

The conference allows high school students an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the workings of local, state, and national government. Active participation in YLA increases the students' confidence and ability to debate current issues. Any high school student in good standing at a public, private, charter, or home school in North Carolina is eligible to participate in YLA. Just complete the student application; you do not have to have a member of the NC General Assembly to sponsor you to participate in the Youth Legislative Assembly."

Submit your application here.

For more information, email the YLA coordinator at or call (919) 301-1372.
