ABOUT US

The Queensland Youth Parliament (QYP) is a unique opportunity for youth to create real change in Queensland. Youth Members are the voice of young people in their electorates, advising politicians and decision-makers across the State.

Beyond bridging the gap between legislators and youth in Queensland, QYP also provides an outstanding opportunity for personal and professional development, be that in leadership skills, civic engagement, public speaking ability or the lifelong friendships forged throughout the transformative experience.

You will engage, support and mentor a volunteer executive team who will in turn support you in the planning and delivery of the 2019 Queensland Youth Parliament program.


ABOUT YOU

You will also be able to demonstrate the following knowledge, skills and experience:

  • Demonstrated event management skills and experience;
  • A clear understanding of the Queensland Governments Youth Strategy;
  • Extensive knowledge of Government and Parliamentary systems and processes;
  • Strong leadership skills including the ability to positively influence a range of stakeholders;
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills including the ability to communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders;
  • The ability to organise, multitask and prioritise work effectively;
