In 2014 YMCA Victoria established its own news room and press gallery for complete coverage of Youth Parliament. This program will continue to run alongside Youth Parliament and offer young people the chance to gain a unique experience in conjunction with The Youth Parliament of Victoria and the Victorian Chambers of Government.
While budding politicians take over Parliament House, emerging journalists from across Victoria will fill the press gallery to file stories for the website http://ymcapressgallery.com, hit the airwaves, and write for publications across the state. You can check out the website to see article previous press gallery participants have published.
In line with the YMCA’s goal of empowering young people the YMCA Press Gallery is an opportunity for young people to get experience in journalism and communications.
