The Welsh Youth Parliament

From debating and discussing issues with their peers to delivering a speech in the Senedd Chamber. The work of the Welsh Youth Parliament provides young people in Wales, between the age of 11 up to 18, with an array of unique opportunities.

Taking part in the Welsh Youth Parliament Elections may be the first time for some young people to debate and discuss issues that matter to them with their friend and as part of a democratic process.

For others it may be an opportunity to gain confidence and experience in debating and highlighting these issues in a way which can make a difference to the future of young people in Wales.

The second Welsh Youth Parliament elections will be held in November 2021.

This election will give young people between the ages of 11 and up to 18 the

opportunity to vote to choose a WYPM for their constituency. Individuals can also

put their names forward to stand for election
