The Tasmanian Youth Parliament program is designed to give young people an opportunity to learn about the parliamentary system and the importance of civic engagement.
Participants in the program are encouraged to attend a training day where they meet their mentors from the Tasmanian Youth Government Association (TYGA) Taskforce and learn about the procedures for debating and writing bills.
A great deal of effort is put into the drafting of Youth Parliament bills in the months before Youth Parliament. This is demonstrated by the quality of the bills and the eagerness of the participants to debate them in Youth Parliament.
All bills undergo a rigorous amendment stage and are only passed in the Youth Parliament with the support of a majority of participants.
All bills are developed by the participants of the Youth Parliament and do not reflect Tasmanian Government policy.
While the bills that are debated in Youth Parliament concentrate on state matters, youth motions cover state, federal and international issues.
Youth motions are unique to the Tasmanian Youth Parliament and cover a broad range of areas including economics, education, environment, health and society, culture and government.
All youth motions are developed by the participants of the Youth Parliament and do not reflect Tasmanian Government policy.
