YEP Austria

YEP stands for Youth Empowerment & Participation, and that is exactly what it is all about. A strong civil society is more important today than ever – the more people who participate, the stronger we are. In order for young people to become active, responsible citizens, you have to take their voice seriously, because democracy and participation are processes that you can only learn if you experience them.
