It supports European youth activities organised by non-governmental youth organisations, networks and initiatives, primarily international youth meetings, but also campaigns, exhibitions, publications, audio-visual material, websites and pilot projects. The EYF also provides grants for the development and administration of international non-governmental youth organisations and networks. More than 300,000 young people, aged between 15 and 30 and mostly from member states, have benefited directly from EYF-supported activities since 1972. In 2007 the EYF supported some 300 projects involving more than 15,000 young people.
