The NYC, as the sole policy making and coordinating body of all youth-related policies and programs of the government, is mandated to initiate and undertake a consultative mechanism through the institutionalization of a National Youth Parliament, conferring upon the Commission the function of choosing the delegates to the said forum. The Youth Parliament shall be a venue for young men and women to participate in the national decision-making processes of the -government. The proceedings, declarations and resolutions of the parliament will guide the Commission in its undertakings and will be incorporated in the government's MediumTerm Youth Development Program (MTYDP) to be formulated by the Commission. The Parliament will be convened every two years with a regular session for two to threedays every time that it is convened. It may form task forces which may meet during the period between the convening thereof (Sec. 13, R.A. 8044).
