Applications are now open for the 2020 NSW Youth Parliament!

One young person gets to step into my shoes and represent the people of Barwon.

As part of becoming the Youth Member for Barwon you will get to participate in the Youth Parliament Training Camp and Residential Camp. 

You'll also get to hang out with me and my staff. You'll hear more about my work, how I became the Member for Barwon and how my staff ended up with careers in politics.

To be a part of Youth Parliament you should have one or more of these qualities:

  • Leadership qualities 
  • An interest in the Parliamentary system and how laws are made
  • Passionate about seeing change happen in NSW
  • Passionate about your local community
  • Demonstrated potential for personal and professional growth

I would love to hear from you by Thursday 12 December 2019, telling me why you would make a good Member for Barwon. 

Please email my Senior Advisor Melissa Meadowcroft - melissa.meadowcroft@parliament.nsw.gov.au
