"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."

"It won’t be wrong to term the experience at the YPP (2014-15) as a life changing experience as it turned out to be a nursery for present day politicians, journalists, researchers, academics and much more. The YPP trained us on lines of democratic and parliamentary politics with a focus on strengthening the civil and political institutions in the country. The freedom of expression was something that was encouraged despite all the differences."

"Youth Parliament Pakistan grooms young people of Pakistan for their betterment and bright future, through Political and Legislative training. It is one of the best debating platform for young energetic youth to open their minds to vast regional and demographical dimensions. Youth Parliament Pakistan enabled me to step-up and become the voice of all those who never had a voice of their own. It helped me highlight the loopholes in our societal norms."

"I believe that YPP enriched my knowledge and understanding of democratic Government and made me an everlasting supporter of DEMOCRACY. I would ask every young fellow to apply for the 8th Batch of Youth Parliament Pakistan."

“For me, Youth Parliament Pakistan’s experience was highly enriching and learning. I got to deliver speeches, draft resolutions, canvassing for votes, interact and argue with the youth from all across Pakistan. With the repertoire of experience and highly competent friends I have made here, I would definitely recommend it to the youth of this country. That we are being heard is the way towards democratization. This is the future. I wish best luck to the upcoming batches.”

“YPP has been an immensely enriching and comprehensively guiding platform. Here I learned to unlearn the theoretical political teachings while familiarizing myself moderately with realpolitik. It's a provocatively awakening project where one gets to know ones potential and the dire need of proactive participation in strengthening democratic institutional building in the country.”

“Youth is the weapon of a nation. Youth Parliament Pakistan is the best platform to give a special representation to the FEMALES of our country for the assurance of fruitful generations.”

“YPP platform brings together promising Youth and facilitate them to exchange and understand contrasting ideas. It provides an equal opportunity to the WOMEN to become Members and encourage their participation in the democratic structure of the country.”

"Youth always ask and demands for an opportunity to participate and learn about the functional politics, its norms and practicality. Youth Parliament Pakistan is a platform where youth can get the necessary training to get started with their political aspirations, but most importantly groom themselves professionally and also into a more responsible citizen of Pakistan.”

“YPP is playing a vibrant role in making conducive environment for a democratic, peaceful and tolerant Pakistan, of tomorrow, by promoting a culture of debate and discussion. I would highly recommend young people especially FEMALES to come forward, participate, and raise their voice on issues of National importance.”

"Hailing from Balochistan province, I found Youth Parliament Pakistan a significant platform in providing opportunities to young people from different areas of Pakistan. It gave us a chance to represent Pakistan at the International level. I highly encourage the youth and especially those hailing from my province particularly FEMALES to come forward and join Youth Parliament Pakistan"

"YPP is a platform which will make you retest your limits and the extent of your abilities. You will find a more refined version of yourself who has a deeper insight in how politics and Parliament work in Pakistan. Make the most of this opportunity and one thing: take every second of your time in YPP as an investment on yourself and learn from the diverse young people you will come in contact with"

"I feel lucky enough to be associated with Youth Parliament Pakistan family. This platform didn't just give me the knowledge about how Parliament works but I had also the chance to meet and interact with people from all parts of Pakistan. PILDAT has done a tremendous job by forming a mock Parliament for the young women and men of Pakistan. I am honoured to be part of YPP"

“The learning at Youth Parliament Pakistan was inculcated in an interactive environment that allowed for developing arguments and cultivating democratic habits albeit in a fun way. Personally for myself, the highlight of YPP was the exclusive opportunity provided for making lasting ideological friends from all seven regions of the country - this is unrivalled and allows one to keep fingers on the pulse of the entire nation. I am grateful to PILDAT for helping promote democratic values in Pakistan where democracy is in its nascent stage"
