The UNITED STATES SENATE YOUTH PROGRAM (USSYP), is a national nonpartisan initiative to provide an annual opportunity for talented high school students with demonstrated leadership abilities to deepen their understanding of America’s political processes and strengthen their resolve to pursue careers in public service.
The USSYP annually brings the highest-level officials from each branch of government to meet with this outstanding group of young leaders—two high school juniors or seniors from each of the fifty states, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA)— for an intensive week-long education and leadership program. The program is merit-based and highly competitive. The program awards two West Virginia juniors or seniors a $10,000 scholarship and a week-long virtual experience with national leaders.
