​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Young Elected Politicians programme (YEPs) is a network of politicians who are no older than 35 and hold a mandate at regional or local level in the EU and candidate countries for EU accession. Fully funded by the European Committee of the Regions (CoR), the YEP programme gives young elected representatives the opportunity to raise their voice at the EU level, take part in the EU policy-making process, make use of tailored trainings and more!

About us

​The YEP programme was launched by the CoR at the 8th European Summit of Regions and Cities in 2019 as a way to give young locally and regionally elected representatives a first-hand look into the EU. The programme has grown both in size and scope since its inception. With a network of more than 650 young representatives from the EU and its neighbourhood, the YEP programme has become an integral part of the CoR. As such, YEPs get the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with CoR members, take part in tailored trainings and participate in the CoR's flagship events.

A call to join the programme is published in the first trimester each year. Learn how to join the YEP community here!​
