YEPP is the youth organisation of the European People’s Party. We bring together 63 Centre-Right youth political organisations from 39 countries all over Europe. Founded in 1997, YEPP has developed into the largest political youth organisation in Europe.

Apart from being active within the structures of our mother party the EPP, we are committed in a number of other international arenas. One of our main objectives is to maintain good contacts within our political family, provide ground for training, discussion and cooperation and prepare the younger generation to lead tomorrow’s Europe. This runs parallel to our mission to stimulate further integration in Europe, to uphold our principles, policies and ideas in the European political debate.

Life has taught me that we must discover what it is that we are passionate about and then use our passion to make a difference. Politics and Europe are what I care about the most: both inspire me and make me stand up for what I believe in.
