Invite for students to join Youth Parliament

TIME is running out for young people in Years 10, 11 and 12 (or equivalent age) to apply for this year’s Youth Parliament (pictured) run by the Y NSW.

With a focus on leadership and advocacy, the program enables high school students to build confidence, develop leadership skills, engage with civic leadership, develop policy and take part in parliamentary debate.
The Y is seeking applicants who have a passion for creating change in their communities across NSW, to express interest.
The Y (formerly YMCA) Youth Parliament provides a unique platform for individuals to actively participate in the democratic process and advocate for issues that they are passionate about. Participants will have the chance to draft, debate, and advocate for mock youth-focused legislation, gaining invaluable insights into the workings of government and policy development.
It is also committed to making Youth Parliament accessible to all young people and welcomes people from diverse backgrounds and interests to apply, with eligible individuals able to apply under a scholarship.
Minister for Youth, Rose Jackson, said it’s a great opportunity for young people to be involved in driving change within their communities.
