The Town of Southampton Youth Bureau sponsored a bus trip up to Albany, NY this past week for middle school students participating in the NYS YMCA Youth and Government program. Westhampton Beach Middle School Principal Charisse Miller and Ms. Kelly Massaro of Westhampton Beach Middle School, along with Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni and Town of Southampton Housing and Community Services Director, Kara Bak accompanied the students to the conference. YMCA Youth and Government is a 3-day experiential learning program in which students serve as part of a model state government, taking over the chambers of the New York State Senate and Assembly to debate bills they and their peers have written. Students are offered the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of issues, develop critical thinking skills, and articulate their beliefs while engaging constructively with their peers from around the State.
