Students Inside Albany is a four-day conference designed to immerse students in the process by which public policy is proposed, revised and enacted in New York State. This conference deepens their understanding of their individual responsibility in our representative democracy and provides them with tools for meeting that responsibility. In addition, the conference allows the Scarsdale students to interact with students from all over the state, learn about their New York State government and the process by which citizens can participate in policy making areas, as well as tour the capitol and meet state legislators.
Scarsdale students who attended this conference in the past were unanimous in their enthusiasm about the program. Last year's Scarsdale attendees are happy to answer questions from interested students. Contact Amanda Glik or Isabelle Riback at SIA@lwvs.org.
