To build leadership skills and critical thinking, foster political knowledge, and meaningfully engage the Youth of Pakistan in democratic decision-making, PILDAT launched the first-ever Youth Parliament Pakistan (YPP) in 2007. Since then, 17 Youth Parliaments have built leadership capabilities of around 1,000 young Pakistanis of 18 to 29 years from all provinces and territories of Pakistan. A number of the alumni of the YPP now serve in leadership positions in politics, government, civil service, law, business, and corporate sectors.
Powered by PILDAT, the aim of Youth Parliament Pakistan is to strengthen Pakistani nationalism within the youth especially in these times when scepticism and self-doubt is being spread among the youth. The YPP aims to reinforce faith and confidence amongst the future political, corporate, business, legal and technological leaders of the country and give them a platform to develop and bolter their vision for Pakistan.
