About the Alliance's Youth Network 

The Alliance Youth Network was established in 2003 to...

  • help young co-operators from different countries to connect, share experiences and ideas;
  • provide an environment where young co-operators can learn more about the wider co-operative movement;
  • involve young people from outside the movement through education and support;
  • empower young co-operators to engage with the rest of the movement to both raise the profile of youth issues and to ensure the youth perspective is presented during wider discussions.
