Young Canadians’ Parliament
The launch of the YCP is taking place on Thursday, June 18, 2020 beginning at 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. (ET). We are inviting you and a few of your friends to sign up for this free digital event! We are asking that adults do not attend to ensure children’s voices are at the centre of the conversation, although parents are welcome to stay close in case their child needs anything Young people who are new to digital events will be supported by peer mentors and youth engagement staff throughout the event.
The focus of this first session is on the launch of the YCP, and there will also be thematic breakout sessions on mental health and summer plans (i.e. the closure of schools). There will be peer leaders facilitating conversations with young people so children can share their experiences as they relate to these topics. The group will then report the major themes of their discussion to a listening table of Parliamentarians. After the Parliamentarians listen, young people will have a chance to ask questions.
