YES Forum - Youth and European Social Work
YES Forum News from our 2021 General Assembly

Dear ###USER_first_name### ###USER_last_name###,

We are back with the latest news and progresses regarding YES Forum and our members. On 22-23 of June, YES Forum held its 2021 General Assembly and Annual Event online. Good practices and recent activities were shared and discussed, as YES Forum always strives to be a platform of exchange for its members and partners all across Europe. The event was a success for the network and we look forward to meeting all our partners face-to-face at the YES Forum 20 years Anniversary event in June 2022 in Viareggio, Italy! We will be in touch with more information about the meeting in the coming months.

YES Forum General Assembly and Annual Event

During the different sessions offered to participants, were presented the new YES Forum Youth Empowerment Strategy as well as new European calls and programmes relevant to youth work. In addition the YES Forum members elected its new board of directors for 2021-2023!

The keynote speech given by Hannah Maes (Youth Outreach Unit of the European Parliament) followed by discussion and exchanges gave an insight into the organisation of the European Youth Event (EYE) and the continuous effort made by the European Parliament to organise inclusive and relevant events for young people from all backgrounds.
