Youth are under-represented in today’s political system.
The Young Greens are proactively engaging young people, giving them a voice and supporting youth involvement in every aspect of political life.
What are the Young Greens about?
The Young Greens of Ontario is the youth wing of the Green Party of Ontario.
The YGO is part of the Party’s commitment to Participatory Democracy, one of the 6 values in the Global Greens Charter. Participatory Democracy is the idea that all are able to directly participate in the decisions that affect our lives.
Specifically, regarding youth, the Global Greens Charter calls for:
“strong support for giving young people a voice through educating, encouraging and assisting youth involvement in every aspect of political life including their participation in all decision-making bodies.”Global Greens Charter

Meet the Young Greens Representatives
The Provincial Executive (PE) is the highest governing body in the Party, and the job of the Young Green Reps is to advocate for youth on all governance decisions the Provincial Executive makes. These decisions include filling committees, approving budgets, making strategic decisions, and much more.
These representatives are also responsible for organizing the Young Greens, including helping campus clubs, posting on social media, and running initiatives to mobilize youth.
