About us

The Youth Board of Cyprus, established in 1994, is a public legal entity dedicated to promoting the active participation of young people in social activities both within Cyprus and internationally. It operates under the Youth Board Law of 1994 (Ν.33 (Ι)/94), which was unanimously passed by the House of Representatives.
The organization serves primarily in an advisory capacity, providing recommendations and proposals on the development of youth policies. The Board of Directors, appointed upon the organization's inception on June 2nd, 1994, plays a key role in formulating comprehensive and specialized youth policies. These proposals are then submitted to the Council of Ministers through the Minister of Education and Culture for consideration.
In addition to its advisory role, the Youth Board of Cyprus also takes on youth-related projects. These projects are undertaken with the approval of the Council of Ministers, either as part of the organization's annual budget or through special decisions. By engaging in such projects, the Youth Board aims to create opportunities for young people to actively participate in various social initiatives.
Overall, the Youth Board of Cyprus plays a vital role in shaping youth policies and creating platforms for young individuals to contribute to society, fostering their engagement and development.
