Young Citizens Academy Graduation

By  | 

(Topeka, KS)--The five-week Young Citizens Academy program came full circle on Saturday, as several youngsters of all ages and from many different schools graduated.

They were excited to have seen the program through to the end.

They participated in many activities over the weeks, including one many described as their favorite: the mock trial.

The Academy teaches kids to become respectable members of the community, and to have self confidence.
