Tremendous efforts have been invested by youth organisations to ensure that displaced youth feel included to the host communities and they have the means to shape their own future. Many creative, inspiring youth initiatives have been carried out on the grass roots, regional and national level, all triggering significant changes.
In order to make sure that youth organisations can continue their important work in the field of refugee inclusion, the European Youth Forum decided to launch the European Youth Initiative Fund with the financial support of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
The aim of the European Youth Initiative Fund (EYIF) is to mobilise young people, promote integration and build positive relationships between displaced youth and host communities in Europe. To do so, the European Youth Forum will provide grants to youth organisations so that they implement projects run with the meaningful involvement of young refugees and asylum-seekers and in cooperation with host communities.
Deadline for application: 4th March 2018
