The European Youth Card Association (EYCA) are recruiting for the EYCA Youth Panel!

What is EYCA?

The European Youth Card Association is made up of 40 member organisations in 38 countries across Europe working to empower you and other young people across Europe.

EYCA member organisations issue the European Youth Card to 7 million young people which aims to encourage you to be socially, culturally, educationally, and economically mobile through the benefits it offers. Young Scot is a member organisation and our National Entitlement Card is a European Youth Card, read more about what that means.

What is the EYCA Youth Panel?

The EYCA Youth Panel is made up of 18-29 year old European Card holders who want help put across a strong voice for young people to help design the programmes and services EYCA offers.
