What are the main activities of IFHOHYP?
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
- The AGM is the main decision-making body of IFHOHYP, held in early spring every year. The location of the meeting changes annually. Each year, a different national organization hosts the meeting in their country.
- The summer camps take place for approximately 10 to 12 days during the summer (school) holidays. The camp brings together hard of hearing young people from different countries, so that they can get to know each other as well as the environment and culture of the place where the camp is being held. The camp program may also include workshops and language courses. Like the AGM, the camp rotates to different member organizations each year.
English Language Courses
- IFHOHYP organizes English language courses for hard of hearing young people. IFHOHYP organized English courses in Malta (1997) and United Kingdom (1999). An “Induction Loop System” and other special hearing aid equipment are provided to assist hard of hearing students.
Training Courses for youth leaders
- Young leaders can share experiences from their work in the national organizations, learn more about the work of international hard of hearing young people, and gain crucial skills for their work at these training courses. The courses are regularly held in co-operation with the Council of Europe Directorate of Youth and Sport, European Youth Center.
