Procedure for New Zealand Applicants
Any current IPA member who wishes to have their child, grandchild or great grandchild participate in a gathering should firstly contact their Regional Secretary to confirm the venue and dates of future IYGs, and to request application forms and other documentation.
The Young People need to write a brief CV about themselves, and why they would like to attend the IYG, their interests, hobbies.
Documentation is usually found on the hosting countries website or the IAC's website.
Completed applications, endorsed by the Regional Committee, are to be sent to the Secretary General of the New Zealand section, (to reach her / him by 31st December in each year) who will arrange for all applications to be seen by the Selection Committee.
Once selections have been made, the decision will be communicated to all applicants and the appropriate Regional Secretaries.
The cost of participation is set by the host country. The NZ Section may contribute funds to cover all or part of the registration fees. Travel costs are, however, the responsibility of the applicant.
