yEUth

Our Foundation yEUthis a new fully motivated, aspiring, enthusiastic and passionate member of the Dutch and European Civil Society which wishes to make the difference and create an impact. Stichting yEUth is seated in the beautiful city of Leiden, a city full of young people and students which is the target group of our work: Youth Empowerment. We have the vision, and we are ready for our mission. We are lucky to have already acquired a rich and multifaceted experience as individuals from our participation in various youth projects and we intend to enrich it and get the full benefit out of it so that we can multiply the impact of these projects on Dutch youth life. The members of our group come from different backgrounds bringing in versatile strengths, interests, experiences and capacities, which combined make a strong team, able to take up all fields of responsibilities associated with project implementation (e.g. organization & event management, educational content development, team management, dissemination & promotion, etc.). We met through our participation in Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges and discovered that we share the same motivation to make a change in our societies through youth empowerment, active engagement and multicultural exchange. We decided to pursue our common goals by “transmitting” the Erasmus+ values to as many youngsters in the Netherlands and Europe as possible.
