Information for Teachers
A strong and growing partnership with Manitoba’s educators
YPM has benefited from strong partnerships with teachers around Manitoba to bring students to our organization. As a youth organization we rely on bringing in new members every year. We hope to continue to cultivate strong and long-lasting partnerships with teachers across Manitoba to ensure that as many young Manitobans as possible benefit from our programs.
YPM is an incredible opportunity for engaged young people to become educated in the democratic process and grow as individuals. It is no coincidence that two recent members of our parliamentary executive earned Rhodes Scholarships, or that we count many community leaders and politicians among our former members.
Send us your students
If you are a teacher in Manitoba, we strongly encourage you to explore this website to see all that YPM has to offer your students.
If you wish to partner with us and provide this incredible opportunity to your students, please contact us. We can provide you with an information package that you can give to students who you think might be interested in our programs. Group rates are available for teachers who want to send a group of students to Winter Session.
Youth Parliament of Manitoba has an information booth set up at the Manitoba Teacher’s Society Professional Development SAGE conference every year in October. We have a display table at the the Manitoba Social Science Teacher’s Association (MSSTA) conference. Be sure to come by and check us out! We will have promo materials on hand for you to distribute to your students.
Teacher Appreciation Award
Every year, YPM honours a Manitoban teacher who has had a significant impact on our organization through their continuous support and encouragement of their students who attend session. Many of our members have indicated that they found out about our organization through a teacher who motivated them to register for Winter Session. YPM recognizes that without the support of these caring and passionate educators it would be incredibly difficult to reach out to students and provide them with the information to take advantage of this valuable opportunity. Thank you!
