Maloney Offers Class on Government to Students

Middle and high school students should apply by March 19

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) will teach a free six-week course on government at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center beginning on Saturday, March 21. Maloney, who began representing the Hudson Valley in Congress in 2013, hopes to give students a better understanding of how the various levels of government, stakeholders and citizens work together and how this work affects people in real life.

The course will introduce the overall framework of local, state and federal government from the unique perspective of a United States congressman and former White House staffer.

“For many students who haven’t met their elected officials, I wanted to bring their government to the classroom. I look forward to having a conversation with local students on our different levels of government and their everyday impact on our lives,” said Maloney.

The first class will be held March 21 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and will continue until Saturday, April 25. This class is open to all middle and high school students but will have limited space availability. Interested students can send a one-paragraph statement of interest to Molly Carey at molly.carey@mail.house.gov by Thursday, March 19. Applicants will be notified of their selection on a rolling basis. For any additional questions, call Carey at 202-225-5441.
