About us

A few words

The Umbrella for Youth is a nongovernmental organization of young people in Europe. Representing lot of young people, we believe youth organizations are the tool through which we empower, encourage, involve, represent, reach out and support young people. The Umbrella for Youth brings together young people from all over Europe, organized in order to represent their common interests. The Umbrella for Youth works to empower young people to participate actively in society to improve their own lives by representing and advocating their needs and interest. In the current uncertain political and social context that affects young people, they can be powerful catalysts for positive change and contributors of innovative solutions to Europe’s problems.
