About SYP

“The Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) represents Scotland’s young people.  Our democratically elected members, aged 14-25, listen to and recognise the issues that are most important to young people, ensuring that their voices are heard by decision makers.  We encourage all of Scotland’s young people to play their part in achieving our vision and provide a national platform for their participation in democracy.” 

The stated aim of the Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) is to represent and promote the views of Scotland’s young people.  In seeking to achieve this, the organisation has adopted a quasi-parliamentary structure, with a standing body of members elected on a regular basis.  The organisation seeks to promote the values of democracy, inclusion, political independence and passion. 

The work of the SYP is designed to deliver five key objectives:

  • Affecting Change: A nation that listens to the voices of its young people.
  • Diverse Representation: All of Scotland’s young people are able to participate.
  • Positive about Young People: Young people are recognised as key contributors to Scottish society.
  • Developing Leaders: Through access to opportunities and training, our young people lead the way.
  • Celebrating Democracy: A strengthened relationship between young citizens and their political structures.

Since our inception over 1000 young people have become MSYPs.
