The WA Young Nationals is a group of dedicated, enthusiastic young people from widely diverse backgrounds with one thing in common – a passion for regional Western Australia.
The WA Young Nationals is open to anyone aged under 32 who has an interest in politics and want to ensure the voice of regional youth is heard by the State’s key decision makers. We offer every member the chance to have a say on the issues that matter to them most.
Young Nationals membership affords like-minded people the opportunity to advance their knowledge of Government and the political process and contribute to the development of party policy. The Young Nationals has an active network spanning across regional Western Australia and also has members who live in the cities.
The President’s Advance Program is a WA Young Nationals’ initiative that invests in the young people who will be the future of The Nationals WA. The program works to develop the political expertise and skills of engaged and active Young Nationals. For more information click here.
