Description

RI Model Legislature

The first regular meeting for RI Model Legislature will be Tuesday, September 26th 12:00 - 1:00

The location will be the Warwick Public Library. 600 Sandy Lane

  • This will be the first meeting of the ENRICHri RI Model Legislature program. An informational meeting was held on June 6th, if you missed that meeting but are registering for the program, you may contact Melissa Robb with any questions. memberadvocate@enrichri.org
  • Registered teens may be dropped off (there will be at least two adults in the building at all times) or parents/siblings are welcome to wait in the building.
  • The students will have some items to work on over the summer and then monthly meetings (the 4th Tuesday each month 12 – 1) will be held September – March. We expect all meetings to be held at the ENRICHri Community Center but there may be a change in venue at some point. Those who take on leadership roles will have additional meetings to be held at CCRI in Warwick (that leadership schedule is available if you'd like to see it prior to registration).
  • All students should be able to attend the Caucus and Committe Day (Wednesday, March 21, 2018 in the late afternoon) and the General Assembly Day at the State House (Saturday, March 24, 2018 morning to early afternoon)
  • Established in 1947, Rhode Island Model Legislature is the oldest model government program for high school students in the United States. This civics program takes students through the entire legislative process at the state level. Students research and write their own legislation, which goes through a committee process; students learn parliamentary procedure to interact and debate in committee. The experience culminates with Liberal and Conservative party caucuses, a Committee Day, and Rhode Island Model Legislature, held each March in the General Assembly's chambers at the Rhode Island State House.
  • Your 9th – 12th grader is invited to join the homeschoolers that will be participating in the 2017/18 Model Legislature. We are welcoming those from RI as well as from nearby MA and CT. This program will be led by the State Co-Coordinator, Louise Oliveria, who has been involved in the RI Model Legislature for over 30 years.
  • The cost, per teen, is $50 ENRICHri members/$60 non-members

  • Refunds are only given if the program is canceled
  • If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Robb
