Youth Parliament 2024
The Tasmanian Youth Parliament Program is an event for Tasmanian students in grades 10-12, held annually in Hobart.
The week-long residential camp provides students with an opportunity to develop their advocacy skills, their understanding of democratic processes, and their knowledge of local and global political issues.
Participants will spend time in Tasmanian Parliament Chambers presenting bills and debating the legislation of them.
Full Week - July 2024
Parliament House Hobart
The Tasmanian Youth Parliament Program provides young Tasmanians with an opportunity to develop their skills in advocacy, their understanding of democratic processes, and their knowledge of local and global political issues. Over the course of a week, participants will engage with a variety of educational workshops, speakers' panels, policy development exercises and social activities, as well as debating bills they have drafted in order to present them to the Tasmanian Parliament.
Tasmanian Youth Parliament will be held in Hobart, July 2024. The Program will be open to students who are in grades ten and up, or of a similar age. The program will be held in Parliament House, with accommodation to be confirmed.
The cost of participation ($299 in 2023) covers all accommodation, meals and transport during the week. Financial assistance is available to help cover the registration fee, and we don't want cost to be a barrier for anyone, so don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like more information about fundraising, bursaries and other ways we can make the Program accessible for you.
We hope to be able to accommodate all interested participants, and anticipate that we will be able to do so, however we can't guarantee we will have the capacity for everyone. As such, this form will ask a few questions to help us determine why you'd like to be part of Youth Parliament and what you would get out of it, so that we can best allocate the places we have available. Don't stress too much about the questions, though - we just want to get an idea of who you are and why you're interested in the Program!
Please fill out this form carefully. It's important that we know all of your details so you can be safe and comfortable during the conference. Make sure you fill out the whole form, getting parental permission at the end.
