Association “Youth Europe” (YE) was born in September 2015 in the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius. IT was established by a group of young and active people who seek change by developing and converting great ideas into a reality. We believe, education is the most powerful weapon which can be used to change the world and Lead the Way to a Better Tomorrow. Therefore we desire to increase youth awareness on most significant issues, challenges, and obstacles facing all of us today. We want to encourage young people to play an active role in the society and by using non-formal education tools we aim to empower youth, improve their social and leadership skills, develop critical thinking, sense of initiative and responsibility, promote youth volunteering. Our main objective is to facilitate that young people non-violently engage with society issues that affect their societies, with the aim of contributing to sustainable solutions. Our contribution may be small, but it gives us a boost to think that we are contributing to the bigger picture and a better future. YE Association is involved in a wide range of activities - participating, coordinating and organizing projects, seminars, exchanges, trainings for youth workers, which provide education of the mind, culture for soul and sport for the body.
