Ninety-five young men and women are being recruited to participate in this year’s B.C. Youth Parliament.

BCYP is calling on community and youth leaders across the province to nominate young people to take part in the program.

“BCYP is education and community service in action,” says Ambrose Yung, premier for the upcoming year of BCYP.

“We’re after young people who want to learn more about our system of government, make life-long friends, and take part in projects that benefit our province’s youth.”

BCYP is a non-partisan, non-demoninational, non-profit service organization, which plans, fundraises and puts in place service projects that help improve the lives of young people.

BCYP members spend time at the B.C. Legislature in Victoria between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day every year to debate and vote on the organization’s proposed activities and issues of local, national, and international importance. All members sit as independents.

More information and membership applications are available online at www.bcyp.org. This year’s application deadline is Oct. 23.
