Parliament House

The Wyndham Youth Civic Participation Project is for people aged 17 – 25 with an interest in how the country is governed.

Participants will gain an insight into how bills are turned into laws, witness politicians debate live in the houses of Parliament and speak to senior public servants about the pressing issues of the day.

The project is for Wyndham’s aspiring lawyers, policy makers and community leaders who would like to see behind the curtain of local, state and federal politics and government.
