International Youth Gatherings (IYG)

Our popular International Youth Gatherings are a chance for the children or grandchildren of IPA members to take part in an action-packed 2-week programme.

Hosted annually by a different IPA section, around fifty 16-17 year olds are invited to participate and enjoy various activities to encourage an ‘international spirit’, and often strong, long-lasting friendships are formed.

Past IYG's have included activities such as:

  • Visits to theme parks
  • City tours
  • Boat trips
  • Activities such as paintballing, raft building and kayaking
  • Safaris
  • Trips to famous sports venues
  • Visits to the local police facilities

Recent IYG’s have taken place in Croatia, UK, South Africa, France and Spain.

The next IYG’s will take place in Czech Republic & Slovakia in 2020, and Austria in 2021.

Below are some impressions from previous International Youth Gatherings, held on 4 different continents!
