Youth Secretariat: The Youth Secretariats (YS) are charged with preparing delegates for conference. The YS range from 2nd to 4th year delegates and serve as liaisons between the delegations and the Officers. YS are tasked with many responsibilities, including preparing delegates for debate by reviewing Parliamentary Procedure, aiding in pre-conference research, and communicating any delegation issues that may have arisen.

The Youth Secretariat mission statement is: “Youth Secretariats are role models in both action and communication, charged with preparing delegates for conference and working to improve the conference experience for all through feedback between the program and the delegations.”

Each YS is assigned a Lead YS, an experienced YS who works closely with the Officer Corps, to better represent the delegates.

Favorite Quote: “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the roundpegs in the squareholes, the ones who see things differently. They are not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, gloriy of vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. And while some maybe see them as crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs
