Tesch calls for nominations for youth parliament

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is encouraging local young people nominate for the 2023 NSW Youth Parliament.

"Do you want to be the Youth Member for Gosford?"

Ms Tesch said: "Youth Parliament is the Y NSW's flagship youth leadership and engagement program.

"It provides high school students in Years 8, 11 or 12 or equivalent age with the opportunity to engage with policy development and democratic parliamentary debate.

"It is about empowerment and providing young people with a platform to participate in the political system and have their voices heard."

The Y NSW chief executive Ms Susannah Le Bron said that the Youth Parliament program provided an important platform to ensure young people were heard.

"As NSW's premier youth empowerment program operating for over 20 years, Youth Parliament offers young people the opportunity to debate in NSW Parliament, create Youth Bills on issues for change, and have their voices and recommendations heard by Members of Parliament.

"Youth Parliamentarians receive specialised training through a series of camps and online workshops, parliamentary education and experience, plus opportunity for community engagement and teamwork which are all designed to nurture participants in developing their skills to create social impact and positive change.

"Throughout the program, participants are invited to create reports with recommendations for policy change and debate their recommendations during a mock sitting week in NSW Parliament House chaired by Ministers of Parliament.

"The Y NSW then actively works to facilitate ongoing engagement with relevant Ministers.

Ms Le Bron said: "The Y NSW is a vibrant, for-purpose organisation delivering cause-driven programs and valuable community services that help strengthen young people's lives, their families, and the communities in which they live.

"The Y is part of the largest youth organisations in the world, YMCA, which reaches across 120 countries."

Ms Tesch urged interested young people to contact her office.
