Mr O’Farrell has acted as Speaker for the Youth Parliament program on more occasions than any other current Member of Parliament. The Premier noted that “many of the ideas developed as a result of the YMCA Youth & Government program are keenly considered by policy-makers, legislators and professional advocates”.

“I would like to acknowledge the tireless work the YMCA and its volunteers dedicate in making such an important program a success”, the Premier said.

We would like to say a big thank you to Mr O’Farrell for his ongoing support of our programs and we look forward to continuing to work with the NSW Government to provide opportunities for young people across NSW to have their say.
