We're a completely new way for you to have your say on the things that matter to you in Wales.
It starts with you
Talking about the things you want and need, raising the issues that matter to you.
Using the Welsh Youth Parliament as the platform to amplify your voice. For your future.
Voted for by you
60 young people aged 11 - 18 will become Welsh Youth Parliament Members.
You’ll elect 40 of them by voting in our election in November 2018. The remaining 20 will be elected by partner organisations.
Putting our parliament together this way will make sure we have representation from diverse groups of young people.
Run by you
If you live in Wales, or get your education in Wales, you can put yourself forward to become a Welsh Youth Parliament Member.
As a Welsh Youth Parliament Member you will identify, debate and raise awareness of the issues important to young people across Wales.
How we'll work
Every two-year session of the Welsh Youth Parliament will:
Empower Wales' young people to identify, raise awareness of and debate the important issues to you.
Listen to young people in Wales, represent your views, and act on the issues that are important to you.
Work with young people in Wales, share what we're doing with the issues you've raised.
