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 eligible youth in Vancouver Quadra to apply for the opportunity to sit as members of the 2012 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.
A soft copy of the application form is available at www.bcyp.org/joinus.html, along with an informational brochure and poster.
All application forms must be received by October 23, 2012. Selected applicants will be notified in early November. For more information, please visit www.bcyp.org.
