What is the UK Youth Parliament?
Run by young people for young people, The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) provides opportunities for 11-18 year olds to use their voice in creative ways to bring about social change. The UKYP is made up of 379 MYPs (Members of Youth Parliament), who are elected by their peers in youth elections throughout the UK. Any young person aged can stand or vote. Once elected, MYPs organise events and projects, run campaigns and influence decision makers on the issues which matter most to young people.
