What does UK Youth Parliament do?

The UK Youth Parliament gets involved in a range of activities, including:

  • Carrying out research into what young people want from their Council.
  • Debates about local, national and global youth, democracy and citizenship issues.
  • Organising local events.
  • Developing publicity to promote events and services for local young people.
  • Going on residential leadership trips
  • Attending conferences and events, including the UK-wide Annual Sitting and House of Commons debate.

What does a MYP do?

MYPs meet with MPs and local councillors, organise events, run campaigns, make speeches, hold debates and ensure the views of young people are listened to by decision makers. The most important aspect of any MYP’s job is to make sure they represent the views of the young people in their constituency. MYPs generally spend between one and five hours per week on UKYP activities.

How to get involved?

To get involved you need to have something to say, and a voice!  You can:
