What will I do as a Youth Parliamentarian?
I have applied to be a participant, when will I know if I have been successful in my application?
What happens if my application for YP is unsuccessful?
What is the program fee for participants?
Can I get assistance with paying the program participant fee?
Yes! We encourage all successful applicants to reach out to their school or local Member of Parliament to see if they can either partially or fully sponsor you.
If you are unsuccessful in exploring this option, you are welcome to reach out to the Youth Parliament Program Coordinator to discuss further options. This may be in the form of a payment plan that best suits your situation.
We understand that the participant program fee is a substantial cost, and we do not want this to deter you from applying as a participant.
Can I participate in the program as either a participant or volunteer if I am from a regional/remote area?
Can Youth Parliament sign-off on my Duke of Edinburgh?
I am a successful applicant, but I need to withdraw from my position in the program. How do I do this?
I am a successful applicant, do both camps (in the April and July school holidays) have mandatory attendance?
Yes, both camps have mandatory attendance. If you are unable to attend in person and you have not communicated this to the Youth Parliament Program Coordinator before camp begins, you may be removed from the program.
Participants must remain on location for Training and Residential Camp at all times. Passouts are not permitted unless there's a medical or family emergency.
