Welcome to YMCA SA Youth Parliament 2017!

What can I expect at Youth Parliament?

As a Youth Parliamentarian, you will learn all about parliamentary process, how to write a bill and how to debate it in Parliament. You will have a chance to develop your public speaking skills and your team work skills. Best of all, you will join 85 other young South Australians who want to learn more about government and democracy and create positive change in their community.

A program overview can be found here.

Parliament Week

Regional participants

Live in regional South Australia? We're pleased to say the Office for Youth has given us funding for transport and accommodation for regional participants. See more here.

  • At Parliament Week, there is accommodation provided for regional participants who arrive the Saturday night (before the official Youth Parliament kicks off).
  • There is also support for travel to and from Youth Parliament.

Key deadlines

  • Youth Bills have all been submitted by now
  • Participant fees and forms are now overdue

Community Cup

We’re launching the Community Cup for the first time in 2017! It’s an exciting challenge for Youth Parliament teams to see who can engage the wider community with their Youth Bill topic the most. Each task or activity earns different points. See the Community Cup overview here. Winners will be announced on Wednesday 9th August. 


If you have been sponsored to participate in Youth Parliament, please make sure you have invited your sponsor to come and watch the debates in Parliament House.
