What it means to be a member: Being a member of the Youth Parliament (MYP) is a very exciting opportunity. Throughout your term of office you will have the chance to get involved in a range of activities. For example MYPs meet with politicians, organize events, run campaigns, make speeches, hold debates, and ensure the views of young people are listened to by decision makers. But the most important aspect of any MYP's job is to make sure they represent the views of the young people in their constituency.
