EYP Ireland events are open to all fourth and fifth year students in the Republic of Ireland, regardless of school or background. We are constantly looking for new ways to expand our activities and to reach higher numbers of young people. If you are interested in participating in any of our events please check the dates for the relevant sessions. If you are unsure of which session to apply to, look below to see which area your school falls under.
Information for Parents
While parents obviously can't participate in a youth parliament, we wish for parents to know about our organisation and why your sons and daughters will benefit from EYP.
The European Youth Parliament is an adventure of one kind for your children. In a society where extracurricular activities are more and more important, we offer a unique way of learning and experiencing the politics and culture of Europe – but we take pride in not being limited to this. Under the guidance of experienced and responsible students aged 18-25, and assisted by the accompanying teachers, our events offer a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.
Participating in EYP will not only foster academic skills of your son or daughter, but perhaps just as importantly, we care about personal development. Through an inspirational and innovative non-formal methodology that was developed at sessions for almost 25 years now, we seek to educate, inspire – and be fun, too!
