Highland Youth Parliament (HYP) is a key way for young people to have their voices and opinions heard.
Over 100 members are elected from across Highland, from every High School and from Local Youth Forums. Elections take place every two years.
• Meet and consult with other young people in schools, youth forums and pupil councils
• Attend local meetings and events – community councils, district partnership and ward meetings
• Attend HYP conferences, where they can engage with Highland’s decision makers.
The HYP Executive Committee plays a major role in the planning and running of the full parliament meetings. The Executive consists of 16 young people from across Highland, and meets regularly to ensure that issues arising from HYP conferences are followed up with action.
