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. They benefit, your school benefits, their family, their peers, their teachers…
If you are interested in joining an EYP Session with your school, get in contact with the EYP National Committee in your country for more information. You will find a group of motivated EYP volunteers willing to help introduce you and your students to the wide array of possibilities that EYP offers on local, national and international levels.
Your role as a teacher
Teachers play a vital role in supporting their students before, during and after EYP Sessions. During a national selection process in your country, your students will participate in a nation-wide competition to participate in the International Sessions of the EYP. Besides organisational matters, this can include topic organisation and preparation as well as coaching on public speaking, voice projection and personal presence.
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.
