|The first YGP Executive Election took place last month! Pictured are 6 of the 8 elected Executives.|
Despite summer coming to an end, the Young Greens are just starting to pick up speed. Over the past couple of months, we've had our charter approved, hosted some great events, held the first Executive election, and are working on growing the youth movement on PEI.
For those who have newly joined ship, the Young Greens of PEI (YGP) is an identity-based caucus of the Green Party of Prince Edward Island (GPPEI). Any GPPEI member 35 years old or younger is automatically considered a member of the YGP!
