Make Your Mark - Get Set, GO! - Youth Parliament aims to break records in biggest ballot of youth views ever in the UK
Today (12th August) marks the launch of Make Your Mark, the UK Youth Parliament's annual ballot of the public, giving young people their say on what is debated by their Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs) in the House of Commons on 14th November.
Each month we invite youth representatives, including Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs), Deputy Members of Youth Parliament (DMYPs), Youth Councillors, Young Mayors and Deputy Young Mayors to share their stories of the positive activities they have been engaging in recently.
Ten new youth representatives have been elected directly by young people to represent them across the world.
Following news that future funding to Funky Dragon has been turned down by the Welsh Assembly, British Youth Council members in Wales have sought the support of BYC. Funky Dragon are BYC’s partner in providing representatives of Wales to the UK Youth Parliament and UK Young Ambassadors programme.
