Rotary Youth ParliamentRotary Clubs of PEI have organized this annual two-day event for Island high school students for over 20 years. Students from all over the Island act as MLAs during the event and have the opportunity to present and debate acts and resolutions on the floor of the legislature.
In preparation for the mock assembly, participants meet with fellow students from all over the Island to prepare their platform and organize their debate. While it does require a time commitment from participating students, it is a unique opportunity for them to present their ideas for the future of Prince Edward Island, and perhaps influence current MLAs.
Rotary Youth Parliament is held in Charlottetown, and the proceedings take place at Province House in the legislative chamber where MLAs debate and pass laws and resolutions. The selection process is determined by participating high schools.
High school students interested in Rotary Youth Parliament are asked to contact your school guidance counselor.
