ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING

Every year young people from around the world, children and grandchildren of IPA members, are invited to visit another country and participate in a once in a lifetime experience that many will never forget.

For the IYG participants it is an opportunity to experience travel to another country and to meet people of a similar age from different cultures and backgrounds whilst gaining a deeper knowledge of the history, social character, nature and family life of the hosting country.

 

In 2017, The South African Section of the IPA will host the
International Youth Gathering
