23 years of Youth Parliament in South Australia

More than one thousand young people have participated in Youth Parliament. 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?


Powerful experiences and great memories

"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 Youth Parliamentarian

"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 Youth Parliamentarian


We celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2015

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

To mark the big occasion, 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.
