Student Legislative Day at the Capitol

MASC/MAHS

Another great student experience is coming your way! Student Legislative Day will take student leaders interested in gaining a better understanding of the inner workings of Government on a full day adventure at the Capitol. This experience aligns with our mission statement and action goals in creating strong student and community leaders. 

This one-day workshop will contain a packed day, ensuring that student leaders get the full experience of life in Lansing. The morning will start with a guided tour of the Capitol building, reviewing historical features, rooms, items and critical Michigan History. After the tour, students will have the opportunity to meet with different government officials and employees to gain a better understand of their job duties and influence across our state. These meetings will include representation from staffers, lobbyists and legislators. There will also be a working lunch to ask questions and continue the conversations with state legislators!

We will end the day with students having the option of sitting in on a live House of Representatives session. This jam-packed agenda serves to provide a well-rounded, exciting and informative day in Lansing. More information on this opportunity will be released to member schools in the coming weeks, including how to register for this event.
