Youth Leadership Tour
Are you a Texas high school junior? Would you like to travel, experience a big city and visit historic landmarks without spending a dime of your own money? Perhaps you'd like to meet your congressional representative, or maybe you're looking for an inspirational experience in the company of other Texas teens. If that sounds like you, the Government-in-Action Youth Tour trip to Washington, D.C., is your tour.
