For schools


 

The European Youth Parliament is one of the most transformative non-formal educational projects your students can experience. Teachers regularly report favourably on the academic, political, social and emotional impacts participating has on their students’ educational and personal growth.

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 introduce you and your students to the wide array of possibilities that the EYP has to offer.

Your role as a teacher

Teachers play a vital role in supporting their students before, during and after EYP sessions. For instance, if national selection processes take place in your country, students will participate in a nation-wide competition to be able to take part in International Sessions of the EYP. Besides organisational matters, this can include assisting students with topic choices, overall preparedness as well as coaching on public speaking, voice projection and personal presence.

EYP sessions both at national and international levels often include a tailored programme for teachers, which includes thematic workshops, networking amongst teachers and a sightseeing programme. Find out where the EYP is active in your country and add your own school to the EYP network map!
