2024 Young Legislators Program!

The Young Legislators Program (YLP) is an educational program sponsored by the Office of Assemblymember Akilah Weber, M.D. of the 79th Assembly District. The goal of the program is to equip our youth with the skills and knowledge to consider a career in government or public service, and an opportunity to learn about the state legislative process, current events, leadership development, financial literacy, and more.  
The Young Legislators will meet for six monthly sessions from April through September, on the 4th Wednesdays from 5pm-7pm at our district office in La Mesa. At the end of the program, the Young Legislators will introduce a bill idea to Assemblymember Weber.
