YMCA SA Youth Parliament's been running for 20 years and so far more than one thousand Youth Parliamentarians have gone through the program. That's hundreds of young leaders with valuable leadership skills, Parliamentary knowledge and the confidence to share their ideas for a better world.

Some Youth Bills even went on to shape South Australian laws. Yep, you can thank Youth Parliament for compulsory bike helmets and the plastic bag ban at supermarkets. Pretty great, huh?


20th Anniversary - 2015

We'll take any excuse for a party! We think the 20th year of Youth Parliament in South Australia is certainly reason to celebrate.

To mark the big occasion last year, we invited all the Youth Parliament alumni and supporters to come together, mingle, celebrate and hear from some wonderful guest speakers

In 2015, we ran an incredible Youth Parliament program and launched the first ever YMCA SA Junior Parliament. It was a pretty great year for YMCA SA Youth Parliament  #justsaying 


Youth Parliament 2015 saw 75 young leaders come together from across the state - including a strong representation from regional areas. They produced a range of Youth Bills such as PLP Functional Skills, Bicycle Licensing, Youth Mental Health, Rural Education Equality and Voluntary Euthanasia.

"When I signed up for youth parliament this year, I didn't really know what to expect. I thought I might improve my public speaking skills, maybe gain a bit more confidence. What I didn't expect was to have one of the best weeks of my life, and to learn more than I could ever have learnt in any classroom." - 2015 Participant

"On this program I met so many great people. I was amazed at the diversity and like-mindedness of the other Youth Parliamentarians. Some of these people opened my eyes to issues that I have never even heard of before." - 2015 Participant
