The Young Republic is an award-winning youth organization, aiming to empower young refugees and foster their democratic participation, civic engagement and social inclusion in their new communities in Europe. It is registered in Sweden as a non-governmental organization since January 2015 and carried its activities in Sweden and 7 other European countries, working with young refugees, host communities, and decision-makers, and reaching more than 500 beneficiaries.
The work is carried out by members on a voluntary basis. TYR are thankful for the dedication and commitment of the members in Sweden, Germany, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Italy, the UK, and Portugal.
Currently, The Young Republic is a volunteer-based organization with no full-time staff. The organization’s goal is to achieve long-term financial sustainability and drive expansion and growth. The team sees it by moving forward with both fundraising and extensive partnerships’ network.
