• JEF is a supranational, politically pluralist youth NGO with about 30,000 members in over 30 countries. The goal of JEF is the creation of a democratic European federation as a guarantee for peace and more free, just and democratic society.



Numerous JEFers commit themselves every day to make Europe a better place, motivated by a profound belief that Europe is our common future:


  • They are young people that believe they can and will make a change in how the European Union develops.
  • They are European citizens that voluntarily spend their free time to keep the European dream alive, share it with others and make it a reality.
  • As federalists, they are convinced that only European democracy can enable a more free, just and democratic society and that European democracy is created and protected through active Citizenship.

We are convinced that Citizenship is not just something European citizens have, but also something they should DO. Nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the society we live in.

As a movement of young citizens, JEF only exists through the contributions of its volunteers. On this page, you can meet some of the people that willingly donate their free time to the struggle for a more democratic, just and free Europe.
