The European Youth Parliament is possibly the most outstanding non-formal educational project your students can experience.
The academic, political, social and emotional implications are guaranteed to enhance their education and personal maturation to a very gratifying extent. The students benefit, your school benefits, their family, their peers and you as their teachers and mentors gain so much.
As teachers, you play a vital role in supporting your students before, during and after EYP Sessions. During a National Session, your students will participate in a nation-wide event so to participate in the International Sessions of the EYP.
EYP Sessions both on the national and international level also include a tailored programme for teachers. This usually includes thematic workshops, networking between teachers and a sightseeing programme.

What others say about EYP
An expression of intercultural diversity, formal political issues and a general fun experience, that raises awareness and furthermore bonds pleasure and business, which is highly appreciated by the delegates.
I’ve learned more in 10 days of EYP than in 15 years of school.
An invaluable education, an unforgettable journey, and an incredible experience.
Rediscovering Europe as a whole and the European in me.
