Become an MSYP

Young people aged 14-25 can stand as a candidate in SYP elections. SYP elections are held in Scotland every two years and will next take place in March 2021.

There are two Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYPs) who represent every Local Authority in Scotland, as well as MSYPs that represent different voluntary organisations.

Being an MSYP is great for your personal and professional development.

Elections are held every two years, and the next election will take place in March 2021. If you missed the window to stand for election as an MSYP, don’t worry, there are lots of other ways you can have your voice heard.

Get in touch with your MSYP and drop them an email to find out how you can contribute to work done at both a local and national level.
