ARMENIAN PROGRESSIVE YOUTH

ARMENIA

Armenian Progressive Youth (APY) was founded in Yerevan, Armenia in 2009 by a group of young people. Today it grew up into a big organization which counts many local and international volunteers, hundreds of members and followers, thousands of direct and indirect beneficiaries from Armenia and all over the European continent. APY is run by young people by means of a democratic structure.

 

The organization has already 5 years of experience in the fields of non-formal education, youth policies, volunteerism, media, gender, environment, active citizenship and participation, human rights and youth work. APY is a full member organization of various international networks such as Youth for Media Network, Youth for Exchange and Understanding, UNITED for Intercultural Action, etc.

 

Our mission is to promote greater awareness of both urban and rural youth about various events at national and European level, to promote active participation in civic life and active citizenship as well as increase the activism of young people and make a contribution to the development of civil society.
