Youth in Action for Peace
Join the Youth Action for Peace international mouvement and look for international volunteering projects across the world. If you are between 14-17 years old you can take part in workcamps in Europe. From 18+ you can challenge yourself with projects in more than 60 countries across the world (Europe, Africa, Asia, North, Central and South America). Youth for Peace programmes also include long-term volunteering.
YAP carries out activities of centralised and decentralised information, communication and education of the youth to citizenship and the European dimension.
YAP also contributes to the involvement and sending of socially, culturally or economically disadvantaged youth at risk to non formal education projects aimed at stimulating their personal growth and capacities inside the community.
YAP – Youth Action for Peace Italia is member of the two biggest networks of International Voluntary Service: CCIVS (Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service) and ALLIANCE of European Voluntary Service Organisations.
