ENGSO Youth is the independent youth body of the European Sports NGO (ENGSO).  ENGSO Youth focuses on the youth sport-for-all sector in Europe and represents young Europeans under the age of 35 in sports in more than 30 countries.

Since 2002, we have been at the forefront of youth sport advocacy at European level. ENGSO Youth actively works on current youth sport issues (equal opportunities, fair play, fight against discrimination and doping, healthy lifestyle, social inclusion, sustainable development, volunteering, youth employment) with its member organisations (National Sport Confederations or National Olympic Committees), European institutions and partners from civil society.


We involve a growing number of young Europeans and organisations in our work to develop ENGSO Youth capacities in more European regions, foster cross-sector cooperation, and develop projects with long-lasting, multiplying and self-perpetuating effects on current youth sport issues to leave a lasting legacy.
