EYP Ireland events are open to all senior cycle age young people 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 children will benefit from EYP.
The European Youth Parliament is an adventure of a kind for your children. In a society where extracurricular activities grow 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 volunteers 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 the academic skills of your child, but perhaps just as importantly, we care about personal development. Through an inspirational and innovative non-formal methodology that has been developed at sessions for almost 30 years now, we seek to educate, inspire – and be fun, too!
