YMCA SA Youth Parliament

An apolitical program that empowers young people to be advocates for their community.

YMCA SA Youth Parliament is an apolitical program that empowers young people to be advocates for their community.  It's about personal development, youth leadership and connecting politicians and decision makers with youth voices and opinions.

Every year, young leaders come together to learn about public speaking, parliamentary etiquette, bill development and youth advocacy.  They share their big ideas, discuss the challenges facing South Australia and create solutions in the form of Youth Bills.  They debate the Youth Bills in Parliament House which are then given to our politicians.  That's real world impact. 

Applications for the 2017 program are now open!  Applications for the 2017 Youth Parliament close 12 March 2017.  Find out more at http://www.sa.ymca.org.au/our-services/youth-parliament/
