The organization is asking leaders across B.C. to nominate young people to take part in the program.

Ninety-five young men and women are being recruited to participate in this year’s B.C. Youth Parliament.

The organization is asking leaders across B.C. to nominate young people to take part in the program.

“BCYP is education and community service in action,” says Ambrose Yung, premier for the upcoming year.

B.C. Youth Parliament is a non-partisan, non-denominational, non-profit service organization, which plans, fundraises and puts in place service projects that help improve the lives of young people.

Members spend time at the B.C. legislature in Victoria between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day every year to debate and vote on the organization’s proposed activities and issues of local, national, and international importance. All members sit as independents.
