Европейска младежка фондация

The EYF thus provides financial support to the following types of activity undertaken by non-governmental youth organisations or networks or by other non-governmental structures involved in areas of youth work relevant to the Council of Europe’s youth policies and work:
*educational, social, cultural and humanitarian activities of a European character;
* activities aiming at strengthening peace and co-operation in Europe;
* activities designed to promote closer co-operation and better understanding among young people in Europe, particularly by developing the exchange of information;
* activities intended to stimulate mutual aid in Europe and in the developing countries for cultural, educational and social purposes;
* studies, research and documentation on youth matters.

A. International youth meetings (Category A)

The EYF may provide financial support for organising international youth meetings for youth leaders, including seminars, conferences, workshops, camps, festivals, etc.

B. Youth activities other than meetings (Category B)

Apart from meetings, the types of youth activities eligible for EYF financial support are studies, research projects and the production of information and documentation on youth issues. In this category the Foundation may support, for example:

– specialised publications (such as training manuals);
– newsletters or magazines produced by international youth organisations or networks;
– information campaigns;
– exhibitions and the production of audio-visual materials etc;
– the development of websites or the production of CD-ROMs;
– the production of posters, badges and stickers;
– research projects on youth-related issues.

In the same category, the EYF can also grant study visits enabling youth organisations and networks to make new contacts in Europe and thus extend partnerships and develop co-operation.

C. Administration of international non-governmental youth organisations and networks (Category C)

The European Youth Foundation may, on an annual basis, grant international non-governmental youth organisations or networks a contribution to cover part of the general administrative costs involved in running their activities at European level.

The Foundation may also contribute to the administrative costs of international non-governmental youth organisations and networks, during a maximum period of three years, in order to help them to establish a European structure (Category C bis).

D. Pilot projects (Category D)

Since 1 January 2000, the European Youth Foundation (EYF) is able to provide financial support to pilot projects carried out in the form of meetings between young people or activities other than meetings (documentation, research and publications). This facility has been introduced in order to enable the EYF to provide as effective a response as possible to the priority objectives of the Council of Europe’s youth policy which, by their very nature, call for means of action which are not subject to excessively rigid rules, conditions and criteria.

These priority objectives are:

* to help young people, particularly disadvantaged young people, deal with the challenges facing them and fulfil their own aspirations;
* to encourage new forms of youth participation and organisation;
* to make a contribution to social cohesion, including through the fight against exclusion and the prevention of phenomena affecting young people more particularly;
* to adapt and broaden programmes and structures in line with changes in society.

NOTE: The following types of activity cannot be financed by the EYF:

* operations of a commercial nature
* the construction, purchase or equipment of buildings
* tourist activities
* statutory meetings
* activities part of a school or university programme
* activities with only a vocational training character
