At the MEC’s Annual Teen Town Hall, the main issues brought forth by students set the stage for topics that will be addressed with Arizona Legislators during Civic Engagement Day. Examples of issues include the loss of teachers, classes, electives, and school programs resulting from the lack of education funding; and standardized testing issues. The Youth Advisory Council/Tucson Teen Congress travels to the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix each year, and meets with Arizona state legislators in order to discuss these issues.
