MCCOY (Marion County Commission on Youth) will welcome over 250 youth and youth advocates from around the state for the annual Youth Day at the Statehouse February 19, 2024. Young Hoosiers will have the opportunity to see the Indiana General Assembly in Action and share their voices at this engaging event.
"Youth deserve a seat at the table where decisions are being made that impact them," said Elizabeth Coit, Executive Director at MCCOY. "MCCOY's goal with Youth Day at the Statehouse is to empower young individuals, providing them with the tools and platform to share their voices and actively engage with the legislative process."

Through engaging activities and direct interactions with policymakers, we aim to inspire and foster a sense of civic responsibility among the youth attendees, encouraging them to actively shape the future of our community."
