Youth was founded in 2001 by a number of politically active young people (link to media coverage) which meant there was a need for an organization that would work steadily to increase political interest among young people. In 2003, it was changed from being an organization to a foundation.
The Active Youth Foundation organizes everything from political debates and seminars to study trips to other countries. We can also help teachers and student councils in high schools and higher education, as well as public institutions and leisure clubs working with youth to give lectures on why youth should get involved in politics.
