E-Congress

E-Congress

YLI's E-Congress allows students to simulate the role of a representative in the United States Congress, by researching and drafting legislation, debating it in legislative committees and voting. YLI now has two versions of E-Congress.

  • The National E-Congress joins your students with thousands of others across the country and takes place from early January until mid-April. International classrooms are also encouraged to participate. Click the National E-Congresses tab above beginning January 6, 2014, and join the National E-Congress!
  • Those unable to participate in the National E-Congress due to time constraints may create their own My E-Congress at any time. The only difference is there is no interaction or voting between schools. See the My E-Congress User's Guide in the downloads below.

The E-Congress Demo gives you the opportunity to view the program prior to having your students participate in the actual program. It highlights all five phases of E-Congress and helps you to prepare for the incredible learning experience that is the YLI E-Congress. Click here to view the E-Congress Demo.
