Welcome to the YES Forum

Young people are at the heart of everything we do!

Founded in 2002, the YES Forum is a European network of 34 NGOs from 18 EU member states working with and for young people with fewer opportunities. Collectively, the network reaches over 650.000 youths across Europe.

As a network, we are bound together by a commitment to improving the life chances of vulnerable young people and fostering their inclusion in society. We act as a hub for transnational activities and stimulate the sharing of best practices in youth and social work. Through our advocacy and lobby work we seek to make young people’s voices heard.

WHAT we do:
• organise transnational activities with and for young vulnerable people with a focus on learning mobility and employment
• develop and promote new ways of thinking in youth and social work
• contribute to policy on youth and social affairs by transferring knowledge gained through practical experience

To meet these goals the YES Forum organises projects, trainings, seminars, and conferences that provide space for exchange of information and critical thinking in the field of youth policy.
