The aim of Hope for Youth is to work closely with young people to develop their interest for positive activities and to allow them to discuss their thoughts, concerns and opinions with other young people from different countries and also with experienced and committed adults. Every year African Hope organizes a meeting of youth from various European countries held in a different country each year under the banner of the European Youth Mission (EYM). These conferences bring toghether young people and have now reached in some years over 1500 participants.
