Leeds Members of Youth Parliament
Following the 2020 elections, the 3 Members of Youth Parliament for Leeds are:
Lanre (Roundhay School), Lois (Cardinal Heenan School) and Gurman (Allerton Grange School).
They will now be working alongside the Leeds Youth Council as well as representing young people in the city on a regional and national level.
How it works
Every year young people in Leeds aged 11-18 vote for their three Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs) to represent them at a local, regional and national level.
Last year MYPs helped roll out the 2018 Make Your Mark ballot and following the subsequent national sitting in the House of Commons in November, your local MYPs are now working with the Leeds Youth Council on the UKYP national and local campaign which is 'protecting the environment".
