Become a Make Your Mark Champion

Become a Make Your Mark Champion & help organise the vote

It’s simple, if you’re 11-18 years olds and would like to get other young people in your school, college, or youth group to vote. This can be online, on a ballot paper, or as basic as on post-its or putting hands up. You add up the results, get a member of staff to verify it and send it back to us.

What happens with the results?

All the results get added up in October. This selects the topics that Members of the UK Youth Parliament debate and vote on to be their campaign for the year ahead, during their sitting in the House of Commons, which is due to take place in November.

How do we help?

There’s a dedicated website for online voting and loads of resources for use in groups, assemblies etc.

What’s in it for you?

Make Your Mark Champions who get over 1000 ballots will be recognised.

  • The Make Your Mark Champions are designed for young people (11-18 years old). If you're over 18, a youth worker/leader/teacher we'd still love your support; please check the Schools/College/Youth Groups registration page for how you can support the vote
  • This is designed for MYM Champions who wouldn't otherwise have access to paper ballots (so aren't MYPs or are part of a registered local council) This address will be passed on to our Mailing House, who will send the ballots out to you to be delivered from 22nd August, by Royal Mail.
  • The British Youth Council collects this data to ensure you can be informed of activities and opportunities in your Make Your Mark Champions role. The information will be stored on secure UK based servers for the duration of the project, we will also use it to inform you of taking part again in 2019. Your information will be shared with British Youth Council employees/contractors, as well the youth worker in your local council who coordinates Make Your Mark locally. Where you have asked for printed ballot papers, your information will be shared with our Mailing House so they can post ballots out to you. In the event that your information needs be shared with a 3rd party not listed we will ask for your permission first
