The EYP Circle of Friends
Our Circle of Friends is a community of EYP Alumni actively supporting the mission and values of the European Youth Parliament through financial contributions.
Your contribution will provide undesignated financial support to be used by the International Office of European Youth Parliament (EYP) to cover key supporting areas: activities that are critical to the continued sustainability of the organisation but not covered by other funding sources and often forgotten.
Your contribution will have an impact on:
- The long-term financial stability of the EYP, by securing capacities for the International Office to support active volunteers and EYP’s National Committees.
- The diversity of the EYP participants by providing travel grants and participation fees deduction to participants from low-socio-economic backgrounds.
- A strong alumni network with a significant impact on society.
- Our efforts to fulfil our mission – inspiring and empowering young people from across Europe to be open-minded, tolerant, and active citizens.
Our aim is to establish a permanent circle of EYP supporters consisting of people that have influenced and/or supported the EYP from the very first International Session in 1987 until now. This initiative aims to ultimately guarantee that the EYP remains financially sustainable.
We invite everyone who wants to support the EYP to join the EYP Circle of Friends!
