The Y-Club is a student-run school based organization for middle and high school students in grades 6-12 that promotes civic engagements, servant leadership and social responsibility through model government, service learning and advocacy. The Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA) is a 3-day expanded educational opportunity in which students serve as part of a model state government. KYA offers students the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of issues, develop critical thinking skills, and articulate their beliefs while engaging constructively with their peers from around the Commonwealth.

At KYA, students participate in one of the program areas at the Assembly based on their grade and experience. Each area is led by presiding and supporting officers, with a variety of delegate roles available to participants.

The Clinton County Middle School Y-Club recently attended the KYA Conference in Louisville on November 7th – 9th. Students presented two bills, including a bill to require seatbelts on public school buses and an act to provide a study hall period be added into the school day. The students worked extremely hard and received awards for Premier Delegation, Outstanding Delegate, and Honor Level for their Merit of Service.
