Jagran Youth Parliament is a learning forum for the young nationals of the country. The first step towards active and responsible citizenship; an opportunity to learn how the parliament connects the local and the national.
It enables the youth to undergo an experience of being in the shoes of people’s representative and understand how democracy functions in real time inside the parliament as it tries to protect every citizen’s rights and live up to the constitutional promises of freedom, equality and justice in a uniquely diverse country like India. It also provides a scope for the young minds to engage with stakeholders to identify and address a city problem and make an impact.
Any young national who is within the bracket of 18-25 years, is NOT a member of any political and religious organization and is not found guilty by a court in India.
