Would you like to stand as a Member of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYP) for Orkney?

MSYPs listen to and recognise the issues that are most important to young people in every community across the country and ensure that decision-makers listen to their voices.  Orkney needs a new MSYP to amplify the voices of Orkneys young people, championing the values of democracy, rights, diversity and inclusion.


Becoming an MSYP is a life changing experience. You will improve the lives of Scotland’s young people, learn new skills, and meet other inspiring young people. You will become a leader, gain confidence, receive excellent training, and much more
