Gloucestershire Young Conservatives (GYC) represent the younger members of the Conservative and Unionist Party in Gloucestershire. We are the voice of the Party in the county for members aged 16-25.
We hold socials, speaker events, debates, and a whole host of other exciting opportunities for our members. We regularly campaign for local Conservative Party candidates in Gloucestershire and beyond. Our events are the ideal way in which to meet like-minded people, to discuss political ideas and to further intellectual development.
As part of our mission, GYC works with local charities in Gloucestershire and volunteers in local communities, especially focusing on the concerns of and issues that affect young people.
For anyone interested in politics or a future career in politics, we offer the chance to gain valuable experience of campaigning, public speaking, debating and networking. Our members also have the opportunity to meet high-profile political figures, including cabinet ministers and senior members of the Party.
Our aim to promote the ideas and potential of the Party’s youth, either as activists, as local candidates, or even as future MPs. We hope to inspire a generation of Conservatives in Gloucestershire who will fill the future ranks of the Party and shape the direction of future policy.
