Active Youth Association is a Lithuania-based, non-governmental, and not-for-profit organisation that unites young leaders, thinkers, and doers. The organisation aims to be at the forefront of organisations creating an inclusive & sustainable life for communities globally creating opportunities for the youth and making a sustainable positive impact in treating our planet, health, vulnerable people & online community.
Active Youth works on international projects and cooperates with organisations of similar profile from all over the world to organise events and training using non-formal education and encourage the youth to play an active role in society. By doing this, the organisation aims at improving youngsters’ skills, sharing experiences and ideas, integrating them within the multinational environment of the EU, and increasing their social awareness.
Specifically, Active Youth focuses on four main topics: sustainability, health, the inclusion of vulnerable people, and digital literacy. Thus, the international projects, youth exchanges, events, training courses, and activities the organisation implements and promotes are usually concerned with these themes, which also constitute the organisation’s sub-brands, namely: Active Youth Planet (AYp), Active Youth Health (AYh), Active Youth Human (AYhu), and Active Youth Click (AYc).
