European Youth Forum (EYF)
Through its activities, EYF tries to encourage young people to take an active part in shaping Europe and local communities. It works to increase youth employment in Europe, supports formal education and vocational training, promotes expansion of comprehensive social welfare for young people in Europe, and combats social exclusion among youth. It stands for the construction of civil society by and for young people. Enlisting in the struggle against xenophobia, intolerance and discrimination, it pressures European institutions to incorporate human rights education into the activities on their agendas. EYF promotes cooperation, cross-cultural dialogue, and exchange of ideas and experience between young people from all over Europe, to provide an equal chance for the youth of Central and Eastern Europe.
