Scottish Youth Parliament

We give girls a voice

Girlguiding Scotland champions youth engagement with the democratic process and has two representatives, known as MSYPs, in the Scottish Youth Parliament.

The Scottish Youth Parliament is the democratically elected voice of Scotland’s young people. It’s made up of 150 young people aged 14-25 from across Scotland and is a platform for young people to make their voices heard by key decision makers on issues that matter to them.

Our two peer elected MSYP representatives attend three Scottish Youth Parliament sittings each year, which involves debates and discussions around issues that matter to Scotland’s young people.
