Politics & You

Question: "I want to become a politician, what advice would you give me to pursue my goal?"


Start playing politics now!  Begin in school by running for class representative, student council, or other club presidencies.  Lobby for a new club!  Then, get outside of your school and explore organizations like Ontario Model Parliament, Ontario Youth Parliament, Forum for Young Canadians, Presidential Classroom, Harvard World Model United Nations, and the Southern Ontario Model Assembly.

Next, contact us and help us run candidates in the next election.  With PPSN, you will have much more focussed mentorship and opportunity to gain leadership experience.

Whatever you pursue, the most important aspect is that you stay true to your higher self.  You are successful when you uncover your personal journey and cultivate your values, awaken your passions, and are called to a meaningful mission.  You are going to change careers many times; learn to integrate diverse talents with new possibilities.  Who knows what life has in store for you?  When you operate from integrity, and are willing to grow personally, you will always be proud of where you stand.
