Youth as agent of changing the society. One third of the population in Bangladesh is less than twenty years old. If they could play role as active citizens, the could lead the country properly in the future. So capacity building of this vast age-group, which more is than one-fifth of the population, is vital for the development of the country, progress of the society and creating sustainable democratic and parliamentary process. More participation of youths and youth friendly state policy are needed for sustainable democratic and parliamentary process of the country to ensure accountability and transparency.
Activities of Bangladesh Model Youth Parliament are aimed at building capacity of the youths to create honest, efficient and young leadership for the future. The activists through this could play a vital role in ensuring accountability and transparency of the parliament members. A thirty-member youth council in Institution level would be formed with the youths aged 14-17 to develop the skills and build the capacity for future youth leadership through motivation, orientation.
The youth council members would also be trained about election, administration, democracy, government and parliamentary processes and their representation will form divisional caucus. Representatives of the divisional caucus will form Bangladesh Youth Parliament.
