Youth is the backbone of every society thus; it is essential that they receive education at the highest standards and become civilized citizens of the society. Although, universities today are playing important role in educating Pakistani youth; yet, it is felt that the elements of citizenship and leadership are still have to be embedded in the youth.

VU Youth Parliament is a platform through which university is intended to give opportunity to its young students (ages between 18 to 35) to come forward and share their view points on every aspect concerned with our country’s administrative, social, political, legal and financial concerns.
