United Kingdom Youth Parliament (UKYP)

The United Kingdom Youth Parliament (UKYP) is a programme that provides opportunities for 11-18 year olds to use their elected voice to bring about social change through meaningful representation and campaigning.

The UK Youth Parliament is made up of 202 constituencies and 391 seats. Each MYP represents up to 20,700 young people.

Elections to the UK Youth Parliament take place every two years. Once elected, Members of Youth Parliament meet with decision makers, organise events, run campaigns, make speeches, hold debates, and ensure the views of young people are listened to by decision makers. As well as being aged 11-18 years old, MYPs must live, work, be educated or volunteer in the constituency in which they stand for election for 14+ hours a week.

More information on the UK Youth Parliament can be found on their website.
