  • Objectives

 

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, 16 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.

YPP 2007

“PILDAT’s Youth Parliament is among the best non-governmental bodies of young leaders in South Asia. It is incredibly authentic in handling the legal intricacies of parliamentary life. The parliamentary sessions provide an opportunity to understand the dilemmas that law-makers face at every step – drafting legislation, engaging in debates on the floor of the house and lobbying to form cabinet. At times, the role-playing activity is so surreal that some members actually start acting like politicians. That’s why I used to draw its parallel with the Stanford prison experiment, but in different context and settings, and with a twist: The Secretariat! The incredible leadership of Bilal Mehboob Shahab made it a great learning experience.”

Mr. Javaid Ali Manwa, Finance Minister of Gilgit Baltistan

YPP 2014

Ms. Hira Batool Rizvi

I was selected to become a member of the Youth Parliament Pakistan(PILDAT) in 2008. It was an enriching experience, that instilled in my 18 year old self, a passion for social change. We went through simulations of the parliamentary proceedings; got trainings from esteemed sitting Parliament members like Mr. Faisal Karim Kundi, Ms. Anusha Rehman, Mr. Khurram Dastagir, Ms. Donya Aziz, and the PILDAT team, and also got to interact with most of all the political leaders in the country. My participation in the Youth Parliament didn’t translate into a career in politics, but it helped me understand greatly, the problems in Pakistan, and the role an individual can play for social change in the country. I highly recommend it to 18-29 year olds.
