The EUJS mission emphasizes our desire to enhance the recognition of the specific needs of young European Jews and young people in general. Our work is based on a set of strong relationships with youth oriented institutions, both Jewish and non-Jewish, and with institutions who believe in the power of youth as a vehicle for positive change. Such work is conducted with a view to increasing sensitivity to the needs and abilities of youth across Europe, and in some cases, to encouraging a greater focus on youth issues and youth involvement.
