What is Assembly Member Henry T. Perea’s Young Legislator’s Program? Now, don’t let the name deceive you. It’s not all about government roles and politics, although we do visit the Capitol and run through a mock hearing. This program is beyond that. It exposes youth to new industries, specifically STEM, and promotes higher education.
I am lucky to be part of this amazing program. I had the chance to visit the Google campus, Electronic Arts (EA) campus, CSU Monterey Bay and many more! I learned about what it takes to create video games and how I can get a job at Google. This program has encouraged me and taught me that even though I am from the Valley, I can still make it to the big leagues (Google, EA) through higher education!
