excellence in youth awareness
june 2019

Aġenzija Żgħażagħ, a member of the European Association Youth Association (EYCA) won the award “Excellence in Youth Awareness” during its 35th General Assembly.

This annual event brings together all EYCA organizations and all members are recognized for projects results in the youth sector at European level. Aġenzija Żgħażagħ, the national youth agency in Malta, aims to integrate youth-related issues and further develop youth services.

This award represents the positive outcome and constant work of YIOSS, following the agency’s participation  during the ‘#giveavote’ campaign, where more than 3000 young people received a special edition of the European Youth Card.

Moreover this campaign assisted the young people in receiving information relevant to the function of the European Union, allowing them to make an informed decision during the MEP elections. This campaign brought on board 2 young EYCA card holders to be the activists of this campaign. Following intensive training, the young activists worked hand in hand with YIOSS to put youth oriented plan in action. But this wasn’t enough; another 5 young card holders attended a youth exchange relevant to the #giveavote campaign.
