Are you between the ages of 18-29? Do you live in the Western Balkans? Do you see yourself as a potential leader and positive influencer?
What is the YEA?
The Young European Ambassadors (YEA) platform is a creative network of future young game changers from across the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia) and the European Union (EU).
Although YEAs come from different backgrounds, all of them share an interest in learning about the EU’s values, and to promote the opportunities that the EU offers. Most importantly, YEAs are open to sharing ideas and developing their talents – towards inspiring change within their communities, the Western Balkans region, and across the EU.
