The EYCA Youth Panel is an internal body of our association, composed of young cardholders from across Europe.

The idea behind the EYCA Youth Panel was originally to allow cardholders to have a stronger voice when European Youth Card services are designed. Since then, it has evolved further to now being its own fully-fledged programme. The Youth Panel now provides feedback to our organisation, helps to steer EYCA projects and is responsible for organising its own youth-led initiatives.

To coordinate their actions and engagements, they meet in different cities several times a year and hold regular online calls. In addition to representing EYCA in meetings & events and assisting in making key decisions, the Youth Panel is currently carrying out the Rural Youth Project.
