Apply to become a Young European Ambassador – deadline extended to 9 October!


With some starting the new academic year, others travelling and all affected by the instability in the region, many young people have asked us for more time to complete their applications to join the network of Young European Ambassadors. So we have decided to extend the deadline until 9 October to allow all those who want to apply a fair opportunity to do so.

As a Young European Ambassador, you will learn more about EU opportunities for youth, represent your country on international level, and contribute to the development of your community. You will learn new skills and make new friends from all over Europe, who share your ideas and interests.

So if you are between the ages of 16 and 26, have a good level of English and are a citizen of an Eastern partner country (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine), or any EU Member State and the UK, you now have until 9 October to apply to join the ‘Young European Ambassadors’ (YEAs) initiative, launched by the ‘EU NEIGHBOURS east’ programme.

To apply for a Young European Ambassador position, you have to complete this application form by Sunday, 9 October 2022. There will be a few stages in the selection process and in the weeks following the application deadline, successful applicants will be invited to interviews and participate in special sessions about the YEAs initiative and related EU topics. More information on the application and selection process can be found here: https://euneighbourseast.eu/young-european-ambassadors/

The ‘Young European Ambassadors‘ initiative was launched in 2016 as part of the EU Regional Communication Programme for the Eastern Neighbourhood – ‘EU NEIGHBOURS east’ programme.
