National Committee

EYP the Netherlands is founded in 1998 by teachers. Now, it is run by university students in a Board (Bestuur) and controlled by a Supervisory Council (Raad van Toezicht). Teachers of high school delegations can still be as involved in EYP as they like, from visiting the General Assembly to travelling along to an international conference. Parents are not invited to EYP conferences, but are welcome to reach out for inquiries.
