Become a Young PC
When you sign up for YPC, you will be contacted about opportunities for you to get involved. You will meet other young people from a variety of backgrounds, all of you motivated to tackle the greatest challenges facing Newfoundland and Labrador. You will talk and strategize, listen, learn and lead. These experiences can be invigorating, educational and life-changing, if you let them be. You will interact with people at all levels of the Party and reach deep into the community while reaching deep within yourself to find strengths and skill sets that you may not have realized you possess. You will discover how gratifying it is to be listened to and respected. You will develop abilities that will serve you immensely well in many other areas of your life: your education, your career, your community involvement and your interpersonal relationships. And you will wonder why you didn’t make the leap sooner.
Message to Our Youth
You grew up at a time of transformation unlike any the world has seen before. Your perspective is unique, and no one can give voice to that perspective more authentically or effectively than you can. Tomorrow is not soon enough for you to lead. Your voice is needed now. Today.
You are the next wave of brightest minds, bringing the clearest vision and the best plans. You will fuel our Party’s next chapter of greatness. Through YPC, you will join forces with other young Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to drive interest and dialogue among your peers and develop novel approaches to the complex challenges we face. Dialogue will be just the start. You will craft policies that will channel this talk into concrete courses of action. Real change will happen, and you will own it.
Think about this. Newfoundland and Labrador leads the country in post-secondary accessibility. This wasn’t always the case, and it didn’t happen by accident. It happened because young people are making the case and driving the change. And so it is with other priorities, like sustainable energy, poverty reduction and innovation. What are the issues that drive you?
YPC is the vehicle for your participation. Get involved today. Take ownership of the challenges you see. Write the next chapter of our history before it unfolds. Our Party needs you and welcomes you. Seize this moment, and you will be the change that you wish to see in the world!
