Who should apply to become a Junior Legislator?
We look for students who want to make a positive difference in our community. Junior Legislators will learn about the different facets of State Government, get hands-on experience as team members for an Assemblymember, meet community leaders and elected officials, work together to propose their own piece of legislation, build a track record of civic engagement and community service that can be included in resumes and applications (both for college and employment), and receive a Certificate of Recognition upon completion of the program.
