YSC Header 004

The Youth Select Committee (YSC) is a British Youth Council initiative, supported by the House of Commons. The eleven committee members are aged 13-18 and include two Members of the UK Youth Parliament (MYPs), two youth councillors, a Young Mayor, one elected representative from each of the devolved nations and three reserved seats.

This year's Youth Select Committee will focus on mental health services, which has been chosen by UK Youth Parliament as the priority campaign, following Make Your Mark (90,549 young people voted for it) and the House of Commons Sitting and is highlighted in the British Youth Council's manifesto.
