European Commission Youth Sounding Board

Applications for the European Commission Youth Sounding Board 2023/2025 are now open. The Youth Sounding Board (YSB) is a group of young people who advise the Commissioner and the Directorate-General for International Partnerships (DG INTPA) on youth participation and empowerment in EU external action.

This allows young people to have an influence on EU external action and international partnerships and thereby contributes to make EU action more participatory, relevant and effective for young people in EU partner countries, across all political priorities:

  • Climate, environment and energy
  • Digital and infrastructure
  • Gender equality
  • Human development
  • Migration and forced displacement
  • Peace and governance
  • Sustainable growth and jobs

How it Works

Through their work, YSB members represent the views of as wide a range of young people as possible, by reaching out to young people within and beyond their networks to gather their opinions and views.

Members build links with similar structures and existing youth initiatives at international, regional and country level, both in the EU and in partner countries. They also respond to ad-hoc issues and requests and take part in capacity-building activities in relation to their mandate. The 2023-2025 cohort will be involved in the implementation and dissemination of the EU Youth Action Plan.


  • Applicants must be between the age of 18-30 at the end of the application period.
  • Be available to devote at least 25 days per year to the YSB.
  • Have a good command of English.
  • Hold the nationality of or be a resident in one of the eligible countries.
