Young Peninsula residents aged 16-25 are being urged by the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to get involved in the YMCA Victoria Youth Parliament. The Youth Parliament is a forum for young leaders to receive hands-on experience in the parliamentary process.

This opportunity gives young Victorians the chance to draft, debate and vote on bills in a three-day intensive sitting held in the chambers of the State Parliament. It’s an invaluable experience, with the bills that pass Youth Parliament then being presented to the State Government for consideration. More than 30 Victorian laws have been shaped with the assistance of Youth Parliament, including the mandatory wearing of bike helmets and the banning soft drink sales in government schools.

Before September’s sitting, the Youth Parliamentarians will attend a training camp in August to develop their teamwork, public speaking and leadership skills.

“I strongly believe our young people should be encouraged to have a voice and contribute to the decisions that affect their lives,” said Mayor Despi O’Connor. “It’s so important for the voice of young people to be heard and their ideas shared with the world at large. They have a unique perspective and deserve to have a say on the issues most important to them.”

Applications for the 2021 YMCA Victoria Youth Parliament program will close on Friday, March 19. For more information or to apply, visit vicyouth.ymca.org.au
