Whether you’re a student, teacher, youth worker or a democracy devotee, YMCA Victoria would love to receive an application from you.

The Youth Parliament program provides 120 young people each year with the opportunity to voice their opinions on matters important to them at the highest level in Victoria. By drafting, debating and voting on pieces of legislation relevant to their communities, these young people are informing Victoria's decision makers of the matters most important to them. 

Applications are received in teams of six, in which each team drafts a piece of legislation with the assistance of a highly skilled mentor to be debated during the program. A team can be made up of young people from the same school, a local community group, or a group of like-minded young people who are committed to the program. 

We would be thrilled to discuss the application process with you, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at 

Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with all things Youth Parliament.
