Who, What, Why, Where and How? – Youth Councils in Foundations

Publication Date: May 15, 2013

Authors: Felix Dresewski;Gabriele Stormann;Michael Alberg-Seberich;Sarah Fehrmann

This report aims to show German funding organizations the positive effects of children and young people’s active participation in grant-making decisions, and encourage the organizations to establish their own youth councils or take other steps to enable participation. In order to make this as easy as possible for the organizations, we set out quality criteria and success factors and suggest first steps that can be taken. Three of the programs run by German foundations that are profiled are covered in depth.
By making youth councils and youth participation more widespread, the democratic process is strengthened and the legal rights of young people anchored in reality.
