Home » Your Voice
As a service we want to make sure that all young people are aware that they have a voice, and that this voice should be listened to. Please find below some different ways of ensuring your voice is heard.
Forty young people aged between 12 and 18 are required for the Youth Parliament which has been set up by Jersey Youth Service.
It has been launched in response to the Independent Care Inquiry and will enable young people to campaign on issues that matter to them with the aim of getting the States Assembly to endorse their policies and bring about real change in the Island.
Members will be in post for 18 months and will meet on a monthly basis. The first sitting of the Youth Parliament will be held in the States Assembly in February during which members will decide which three policies they will campaign on during their term of office.
They will then research their policies in smaller groups and gather the views of other young people before compiling a presentation which they will give to the Minister for Children and Housing and any other relevant Minister.
