What is the UK Youth Parliament?

The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) is run by young people for young people and enables 11-18 year olds to use their energy and passion to change the world for the better and bring around social change.

What does it mean to be a Member of Youth Parliament (MYP)?

Being an MYP is a very exciting opportunity. Do you want to:

  • collect and represent the views of other young people in Suffolk on issues that matter to them
  • present these issues on a local and national level
  • plan and run a campaign on the top Make Your Mark topic. This year it's 'Protect the Environment'. 

 MYPs are politically neutral, they usually stand for a two year term.

 MYP elections are just around the corner - we are asking young people to come forward and apply.

It’s not about being political or being a top student or being something you are not – being an MYP is for everyone and what really matters is that you are passionate about young people having a voice, that you have some time and a vision to make things better!
