The Georgia Legislative Black Caucus, Inc. (GLBC) is inviting high school juniors and seniors in the metro Atlanta area to attend Youth Day at the Capitol on Friday, April 25.

Every year, about 200 students attend Youth Day at the Capitol.
“It’s going to be a really good program. This is a great opportunity for students to come down to the Capitol and see firsthand what takes place there,” said State Rep. Dee Dawkins-Haigler. “We’re looking forward to having students come and we’re encouraging people to spread the word for students to register.”
The program is being hosted by GLBC along with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.– Stone Mountain Lithonia Alumnae Chapter; Hank Stewart Foundation; National County of Negro Women Rockdale/Newton Section; Enchanted Closet GIRL$ Service Learning Program; Jack and Jill of America – East Suburban Atlanta Chapter; Jewell Jackson McCabe Emerging Leaders Institute; Knorthstar Outreach; SHE IS POWERFUL INC.; and the Jewels Initiative.
