Uk Parliment Logo We are looking for our next Redcar & Cleveland Member of UK Youth Parliament.



Are you


What's it all about?
What is a Member of Youth Parliament (MYP)?
What is it like being an MYP?

"Hi Im Tim,

"This past year I have been working to get your voice heard and to improve the lives of young people in Redcar and Cleveland.

"When I was elected I knew the status of MYP would allow me a great platform from which to speak on your behalf and gather support for us in the North, who are often neglected by parliament. I have done this to the best of my ability by speaking at the Houses of Parliament on the issue of votes for 16 and 17 year olds. As well as this I have debated at multiple youth parliament residentials and learned the necessary skills for being a member of Youth Parliament. Above all, the most important thing I have done is help develop the role of MYP in Redcar and Cleveland. My duties have become an organised workload, allowing for concise, effective change. This means that whoever eventually succeeds me as MYP will be able to achieve their targets quickly and successfully using our local Youth Parliament system."
Timothy Would MYP (2015 - 2017)


What is expected of me?
Interested? Want to apply?

Brilliant! Heres how!

How do I become an MYP?
To become an MYP you have to be elected by other young people in an official UKYP election. .
