Young Canadians’ Parliament

The YCP is a growing movement of young people under 18 who are speaking up for their rights at the highest levels of government. Your support will empower youth to be leaders today and tomorrow.

Being, Belonging,

Being, Belonging, Becoming is an innovative youth leadership program that improves the mental health and resilience of equity-deserving youth and buffers them from adversity. Supported by a cutting-edge rights-based curriculum and digital platform for learning and engagement, underserved youth develop the skills, capacity and confidence to create innovative solutions to complex social issues that drive poor mental health such as bullying, racism and climate change.
