Youth Active Minds (YAM) is an AMKE created by educators who want to take an active role in local initiatives that address important social issues. Our aim is to organize educational, environmental and sustainability actions using non-formal education, with the help of local communities, Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps.



Our goal is to activate young people, and generally people with a youthful spirit and open mind in matters that concern:

Environment and sustainable mobility


Education - Science-New


Volunteering - youth mobility

Integration - Inclusion - Social equality

We believe that life finds meaning only in responsibility, cooperation, solidarity and love. YAM has been active in the field of sustainable mobility, nature and education since its inception. On our page you can find opportunities for youth exchanges and volunteering throughout Europe and in Greece.
