A grant was awarded to fund a nine-day residential program run by YMCA youth leaders to educate and engage participants from across Victoria on parliamentary procedure, law-making processes, public speaking and social issues.

The 2013 'YMCA Victoria Youth Parliament' program ran between June and July and included nine days of residential programming. The highlight of the program was the three days of debate in Parliament House where numerous youth Bills were passed by all of the youth parliamentarians.

Foundation funding was used to support a regional youth parliament team, made up of students from Years 11 and 12 who are currently studying law in VCE.
