The Young Greens of PEI (YGP) is an identity-based caucus of the Green Party of Prince Edward Island. It obtained official status in the party through the approval of its Charter in June, 2019, although Young Greens activities have taken place since 2018.
Any Green Party of PEI member 35 years old or younger is automatically considered a member of the YGP and is eligible to vote in its elections and Annual General Meetings. The YGP welcomes all youth, regardless of party membership or affiliation, to take part in its activities.
The fundamental purposes of the Young Greens of PEI are to:
- advocate for policies that are of particular interest to youth;
- provide a conduit for youth to have input to policy priorities;
- encourage youth engagement with the party through becoming members and volunteers of GPPEI;
- serve as a liaison between youth and the other parts of the GPPEI and other groups;
- coordinate activities for its members;
- encourage the political engagement of secondary and post-secondary students and provide them with educational opportunities and leadership roles;
- promote youth voter turnout.
