Sri Lanka Youth Parliament 2008-2010 – Apply Now
The Sri Lanka Youth Parliament is a youth led, youth run initiative, whose aim is to mobilize and create a network of young people to bring about positive and sustainable change to issues that affect youth and their communities in Sri Lanka .
The first step towards this endeavor was the ‘first sitting of the Sri Lankan Youth Parliament’ (SLYP 2005) which took place on the 24th to the 28th of August 2005 at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall.
Building upon the successes of the inaugural sitting of the Sri Lankan Youth Parliament (SLYP) 2005 a diverse mix of youth activists, Action Partners, and members of the original steering committee are putting their heads together to formulate and implement the next cycle of action for the Sri Lankan Youth Parliament.
Young people who are between the ages of 16 to 25 who are interested in working in their communities to address social issues, and are committed to work towards creating a cohesive Sri Lanka are invited to apply to become Action Partners. Those who are currently actively involved in social change activities are invited to apply, as are the budding social activists who have a dream and a vision within them to be the change they want to see. They would then come together during a learning, sharing, enabling and empowering event in the form of the Second Sitting of the Sri Lankan Youth Parliament in September 2008.
