The YES Forum is a network of organisations working with and for young people who face disadvantages stemming from their socio-economic background, educational difficulties, discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity, and/or geographical seclusion.
With our work, we support the EU youth policy process. We actively work toward the fulfilment of the 2010-18 EU Youth Strategy’s objectives:
- providing more and equal opportunities for young people in education and in the job market
- encouraging young people to actively participate in society.
The main areas we focus on in our work are education and training, youth employment, youth participation, and social inclusion. Furthermore, we support the objectives of the Europe 2020 Strategy and strive to always develop new and innovative ways to work with and for young people.
We are resolute about the best way to reach these objectives: it can only be done through a strong youth and social work sector across Europe.
