"Peace is more than signing treaties or the mere absence of war, it is an active pursuit of justice"

Who We Are.
Youth Action for Peace is an international peace movement which aims for societies of peace, justice, and self determination. Since 1923 Youth Action for Peace has been committed to promote peace and dialogue in local communities through the active participation of young people. Youth Action for Peace has 17 member organisations and numerous partner organisations.

What We Do.
Our programs raise awareness about the impacts and actions against discrimination, social exclusion, injustice, and violent conflicts. The active participation of young people from all around the world in local community projects and international training courses together with the support from the local communities enable us to transform society towards social inclusion, justice, and peace. Working in conflict and post-conflict areas such as Algeria, the Balkans, Palestine, and West Sahara is one of the priorities of YAP.

Our Programs.
Youth Action for Peace organizes international exchanges of volunteers into non-profit initiatives, international training courses and seminars and other activities such as conferences, campaigns and various publications.

The programs of Youth Action for Peace focus on:
-Youth Participation/ Active Citizenship
-Peace and Development Education
-Inclusion of Young People with Fewer Opportunities
-Community Development
-Long-Term Volunteering
-Trainings and Seminars

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain
