Nakia Youth Parliament 3

This image was sent to us by our First Person contributor, Nakia Cadd. It’s a photo of all the incredible young people who participated in the YMCA’s ‘Youth Parliament,’ a program designed to give young Victorians between the ages of 16 – 25 a chance to be heard at the highest levels of State Government, on a wide range of issues relevant to young people’s lives. Whilst in Youth Parliament, Nakia and her fellow participants, developed a Bill that┬áproposed Mandatory Indigenous seats on all local Victorian councils, and the Bill was successfully passed. An incredible result from some incredible young people, giving us faith in the our future Government representatives.
