The 13th sitting of the National Youth Parliament of Jamaica will take place at Gordon House on Duke Street in downtown, Kingston on Monday, November 28 at 10:00am.

This year’s sitting will be held under the theme “Reignited: Empowering Youth for Jamaica 60 & Beyond”.

The National Youth Parliament will revert to its usual modality, where 70 young ‘parliamentarians’ will physically gather inside the chamber at Gordon House to debate sub-themes under the following areas:

- Financial literacy

- Affordable housing and finance

- Youth psychological wellbeing

- Parenting and education

Members of the public are invited to follow the proceedings which will be broadcast live on Public Broadcasting Corporation of Jamaica (PBCJ) channels.

The National Youth Parliament, which is a joint effort between the Ministry of Education and Youth and the Houses of Parliament, is one of the activities being held to mark Youth Month.
