Volunteers Making all the Difference

Although the YIG program prides itself on the maturity to independently form a Model Government with our own leadership, our time at the Capitol would not be possible without the help from many adults that volunteer their time. Formally known as college advisors, those who impose the function of this weekend’s events are now newly referred to as program volunteers. Volunteers, like Alex Compton, who described how he viewed his role “to come and help facilitate logistics…and the function of events”.  Twenty-one of these volunteers will ensure another smoothly run session. This change more efficiently “opened it up to Alumni” according to program volunteer Sara Ender.  No matter the name, these trusted adults help guide the session routing bills and supervising debate, ensuring delegates can focus on direct involvement their program area.
