We are deeply grateful for the generous support from our founders and donors, whose contributions enable us to achieve our mission to support young leaders in Europe fighting for democracy. Our success is also made possible through the collaboration with our trusted partners. We are proud to work alongside these organizations, who have offered in-kind contributions and covered pro-bono our members’ participation in their events, training, conferences, workshops, and study visits.



“Join us and together we can support young people to ensure democracy for the future, not just the past.”
