Alumni network

In 2017, the European Youth Parliament celebrated its 30th anniversary during the International Session in Brno. This event was a starting point for the kick off of the Alumni initiative with a Steering Group of former EYPers who are now experienced professionals across all sectors of society.

The main goals of the alumni initiative have revolved around the following points allowing alumni to:

(1) Return to EYP as a place to exercise active citizenship;
(2) Give back to EYP;
(3) Reconnect with friends and revive EYP spirit.

Bearing this ideas in mind, the alumni initiative has implemented several projects such as: Europe-wide alumni get-togethers (called“Happy Hours”), a crowdfunding campaign for EYP Alumni, the very first Alumni Reunion in 2018 and an upcoming one for 2019 during the International Session in Hamburg (September), as well as two rounds of a mentorship programme connecting alumni, with experience in different professions and carreers, with younger active EYPers.
