The National Indigenous Youth Parliament (NIYP) is an exciting opportunity for young Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people aged 16 to 25 to learn about Australia's democracy and to have a say about Australia’s future.
More information about NIYP 2017 and how to apply will be available on this page late January 2017.
The second National Indigenous Youth Parliament was held in Canberra from 28 May to 3 June 2014.
The inaugural National Indigenous Youth Parliament was held in Canberra from 23–29 May 2012 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Indigenous right to vote in federal elections.
