This week, Sir Walter Raleigh was prepped and ready for the YMCA’s Youth & Government Conference. High school students from around North Carolina will convene at the Raleigh Convention Center for a ‘mock legislature,’ where they workshop writing bills and debating. The conference runs February 14-17.
