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.

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus (COVOID-19) pandemic, the IYG in 2020, which was set to be held in Czech Republic & Serbia, has been cancelled.
