MEET OUR CANDIDATE FOR THE COUNCIL OF EUROPE ADVISORY COUNCIL OF YOUTH 2020-2021

26th March 2019

YMCA Europe has the pleasure of nominating Alex to run for a seat at the Advisory Council on Youth of the Council of Europe

What is the Advisory Council on Youth?

The Advisory Council on Youth is the non-governmental partner in the co-management structure which establishes the standards and work priorities of the Council of Europe’s youth sector and makes recommendations for future priorities, programmes and budgets.

It is made up of 30 representatives from youth NGOs and networks in Europe and its main task is to advise the Committee of Ministers on all questions relating to youth. Specifically, the Advisory Council helps to ensure youth policies are mainstreamed into the Council of Europe's programme of activities by providing opinions and proposals to all of the Organisation's bodies. It also ensures that young people are involved in other activities of the Council of Europe and promotes the policies beyond the Organisation. Learn more
