Hellenic Youth Participation is a pioneering education and empowerment organization that connects citizens locally, nationally and internationally. We envision a society in which each individual cares and acts.

The main axes of our project are

  • Providing high quality services for personal development and social optimization.
  • Activating young people on European issues and encouraging them to participate in social and political life.
  • Awareness of issues that are important to our communities, such as the environment, the arts, human rights, personal and professional development, employability skills, democracy, respect for diversity and a conscious life.
  • Intercultural and interpersonal dialogue.
  • Providing opportunities, perhaps, without discrimination.
  • The anthropocentric, diverse and needs-based actions of the participants, which in many cases are led by the participants themselves and are based on teamwork.
  • Respect for oneself and the other regardless of origin, education, financial, family or health status, sexual orientation, identity or gender or political or religious beliefs.
