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.”
We are actively recruiting new members,
and preparing for the 2022 election!
If you are under 18 or a member of a Green Campus Club you can join the Green Party of Ontario for free!
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.
Those 2 positions are currently held by Hannah Conover-Arthurs and Gabriel Blanc, but this could be you! If you're interested in becoming a Young Green Representative, PE elections are happening soon.
Young Greens Campus Clubs
Campus clubs operate at post-secondary institutions and are a great way for Green Party supporters to stay engaged with the Party while away at school.
Campus clubs are active in their communities promoting the Party and its values and are also a great way for supporters to make connections and socialize.

Thank you for your support!
Can you chip in $3 to help us put a "greener and more caring Ontario" on the government's agenda? Even a little would help tremendously. But if you can't, maybe you'd consider sharing instead?
