The British Columbia Youth Parliament’s 84th Parliament will be held in Victoria at the Provincial Legislative Chambers from December 27 to 31, 2012. The Youth Parliament is a province-wide non-partisan organization for young people ages 16 to 21. It teaches citizenship skills through participation in the December parliamentary session and in community service activities throughout the year. Youth Parliament is a one year commitment.
I invite you to encourage eligible youth from your municipality or region to apply to sit as members of the Youth Parliament. Youth Parliament is non-partisan, and applicants need only be interested in learning more about the parliamentary process and in serving their community.
Soft copies of the application form, as well as a brochure and poster, are available from our website at www.bcyp.org/joinus.html. Your municipal office should also have received hard copy information earlier this month. I encourage you to make the application form and brochure available to interested young people and to make copies of the forms as needed. If your municipality sponsors a “youth of the year” award or has a municipal youth council, young people with that sort of initiative and involvement are ideal candidates for our organization.
All application forms must be received by October 23, 2012. Applicants will be notified whether they have been selected in early November. If you require more information, visit our website at www.bcyp.org.Search again
