Participant Roles


As a Delegate at a Session, you will be put in a group with 8-11 other people, called a committee, to discuss a specific, current issue with the aim of developing a common solution, writing it down, and then discussing it with other committees. This is probably the best role to get started in EYP!


The Organising Team is composed by Head-Organisers and Organisers. The Head Organisers are the ones who plan the session from the very start, and lead their team, the organisers. These are the ones who help with the logistical work before the event, and make sure all the tasks required during the session are done.


The Journalists of the session are inserted in the Media Team. This team is usually composed of an Editor, Editorial Assistant(s), and Journalists. The Editor is responsible for coordinating the whole team, together with the Editorial Assistant(s), while also creating media content for the session such as the Session Video. The Journalists, on the other hand, are also responsible for creating media output and engaging in their own Session Projects, as well as being assigned to a committee and taking pictures of them.

Committee Leader

The Committee Leader, commonly known as Chairperson, is the person responsible for a group of Delegates, or committee. They are overseen by the Board of a Session, which is composed by a President and two to four Vice Presidents. Whilst the President and the Vice-Presidents are responsible for supporting the Committee Leaders, the Chairpersons are in charge of guiding their respective committee, helping their Delegates create a Resolution document for their Committee Topic.


A Juror is inserted into the Jury Team, which is composed by a Head of Jury and two to four Jurors. This team only exists if the Delegates can be selected to another, bigger session. The Jury Team is responsible for making this selection, based on criteria established by each National Board.
