A regional network of non-governmental youth organisations is similar to an international network, except that:

  • it is composed of at least 4 and not more than 6 organisations (with a “central” organisation and 3 to 5 member organisations)
  •  it has a "regional" scope of work, and this means that it should be working within a specific regional area of Europe. The term regional refers to supra-national and not regional in the sense of one region in one country.


Example: 4 organisations based in Germany, Poland, Czechia and Slovak Republic


To receive funding from the EYF, the "central" organisation should apply for an international or pilot activity in the name of the other organisations in the network. This organisation can also apply for a one-off structural grant (see eligibility criteria) on behalf of the network. The network must have its own statutes.
