TUXIS Parliament of Alberta

WHAT IS TUXIS?

TUXIS is a model parliament for Alberta youth aged 15 through 21. It is a self-run volunteer organization, and the oldest continually running youth parliament in Canada.  TUXIS is founded upon four aspects: the social, the intellectual, the physical, and the spiritual. TUXIS is non-denominational and welcomes youth of all belief systems.

CONFERENCES

There are five conferences throughout the year, usually in February, April, May, September, and November.  Each begins on Friday night and ends on Sunday afternoon. Conferences are used to plan for Session, the week of debate that takes place December 26-31, and allow the TUXIS community to come together for a weekend of fun and friendship.

At conferences, members participate in a practice debate, a planning meeting and a wide variety of programming. Ministers and Deputy Ministers plan activities and discussions for programming that include ice breaker activities, active and creative games, charitable work, discussions on world issues, and activities that help members to grow both spiritually and as individuals.

WHY COME?

TUXIS is a great place where you can build life-long friendships, gain public speaking and leadership skills, and learn about the world around you.  It is a diverse group of young people that are caring, open-minded, and interested in issues that are important to its members.  Additionally, there are many opportunities for you to volunteer and make a difference in your community!

At TUXIS you will get the opportunity to learn about the world around you, learn about yourself, and have a GREAT time. TUXIS is a place where you can meet some of your best friends and have the time of your life. Most members leave one event counting down the days until the next.

COSTS AND TRAVEL

The cost for a conference is $30, or $35 for late registrations. Registration is due one week before the Friday of the conference. Meals and accommodations are included, but extra money can be brought for snacks or merchandise.
