For Teachers

YPM has benefited from strong partnerships with teachers around Manitoba to bring students to our organization. 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 our alumni network includes Rhodes Scholars, prominent politicians, Ivy League graduates, and celebrated members of the community.

We want 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 to provide this incredible opportunity to your students, please contact us. We would be happy to provide you with an information package that you can pass on to students who you think might be interested in Winter Session.

MSSTA SAGE

Youth Parliament of Manitoba sets up a display annually at the Manitoba Social Studies Teachers’ Association (MSSTA) SAGE conference in October. We will have posters, handbills, business cards, and of course, smiling volunteers to help you learn more about our organization. We love visitors!

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!
