Applications are now open for young people aged between 15 and 25 years to join the 2013 YMCA Queensland Youth Parliament. Youth parliament gives young people valuable skills and experience to help prepare them to become future community leaders. The program includes debating, negotiating and leadership skills and allows them to see and learn firsthand what it is like to be a Parliamentarian by learning about the rules, writing bills and debating them in the Parliamentary chamber. Applications close on 22 February and information can be obtained by visiting www.qld.gov.au/youth.
I am happy to meet with any young people considering an application in my office to discuss any questions they have so please email or call to make an appointment – firstname.lastname@example.org or 5435 2013.
