Youth Advocacy Training
We Want Youth Image of Uncle Sam

Denton County Federation of Families

Once upon a time there were some web training materials here but when we migrated webservers all was lost but the tests - and who wants just a test! We will be working collaboratively with the Texas Federation of Families and Alamo Youth MOVE to come up with some fun training links that also help you build skills in self advocacy!

In the meantime, below there are some games that will teach you something about the United States government while you have some fun!

All the games require the Macromedia Flash Plugin to play
