Tanya Davies MP on the lookout for Youth Member!

Wednesday July 1, 2015

Tanya Davies MP is searching for young people to participate in the YMCA NSW Junior Parliament 2015 from the electorate of Mulgoa.

“The YMCA NSW Junior Parliament is a youth empowerment program for students in years 7-9 of high school. Junior Parliament is designed to empower young people to speak up on issues they are passionate about and create positive change in their community,” said Mrs Davies, “I strongly encourage local young people who are interested in getting their voice heard in Parliament to contact my office.”

The YMCA NSW Junior Parliament empowers young people to speak up on behalf of their peers as their representative in the NSW Legislative Assembly.

The successful applicant will participate in a 5-day residential program during the September school holidays. This will involve on-camp educational sessions and two days at NSW Parliament debating Bills drafted by participants.

Tanya Davies is asking interested applicants to register their interest in representing their area as a Junior MP by emailing to Mulgoa@parliament.nsw.gov.au. A series of interviews will then be conducted to find the right person to represent their electorate.

Interested applicants should answer the following questions in their expression of interest:

  • What qualities make a good leader?
  • Why you would be an excellent Junior Parliamentarian for Mulgoa?
  • If you could change or improve one thing in our area, what would it be?

Tanya Davies will only be taking expressions of interest until 5pm Friday 24 July 2015, so if you are interested, you better be quick!
