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.
