YMCA Victorian Youth Parliament begins.

Mildura locals develop a bill for Parliament House

Milduras Youth Parliament team has hit Canberra, the young locals facing off against 19 other groups for the 32nd YMCA Victorian Youth Parliament.

 

The three day event gives young people the opportunity to draft, debate and vote on bills; with those that pass provided to the relevant minister for consideration.

 

More than 20 bills passed by Youth Parliament have gone on to become law, including laws for mandatory wearing of bike helmets, and nightclub safety reforms.

 

 

The Mildura Youth Parliament Team developed the "Out of Home Care Support Reform" bill, taking to social media to confirm the local initiative bill passed through the Legislative Assembly of the Youth Parliament of Victoria 48 to 11.

 

The team has thanked the community for their encouragement.
