Students Inside Albany 2016
"The Students Inside Albany Conference was an amazing experience that taught me so many things. I learned about how New York government operates, problems that it is faced with, what my elected officials do during their day, and much more! I also was able to meet so many motivated and talented youth who are deeply motivated to make positive change for our communities, country, and world."  Freya Birkas-Dent

Students Inside Albany (SIA) is a conference sponsored by the League of Women Voters of New York State Education Foundation, Inc. This Conference is an intensive four day training experience held in the spring and is designed to immerse students in the process by which public policy is proposed, enacted and changed in New York State and educate them as to how they can influence and affect this process. Albany insiders discuss the operations of New York State government including how policy is shaped and enacted. Students students are afforded the opportunity to observe Assembly and Senate sessions and to shadow both their Assembly members and Senators.
