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.

Watch our Youth Parliamentarians in action!

This year our Youth Parliamentarians will be in Parliament House debating the bills they have written on Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th, Thursday 14th and Friday 15th of July. These debates are open to the public. Come along and be inspired by South Australia's young leaders.
