This two-year term not only offers the opportunity to develop leadership and research skills but also to engage in political debates alongside Members of the Senedd.

Members of the Youth Parliament address various issues such as life skills in school, plastic waste, mental health support, and the climate crisis. Their report on these topics is presented to Welsh Government Ministers who attend meetings at the Senedd.

To be eligible, candidates must be between 11 and 17 years old, live or receive education in Wales, and submit a biography outlining their suitability for the role along with the top three issues they wish to address.

If you are passionate about shaping the future and making a difference, seize this opportunity and learn more about becoming a Welsh Youth Parliament Member here.
