The Fédération Internationale de la Jeunesse in English International Youth Federation (IYF), is an international non-profit youth organizations network governed by the present Statutes and the Swiss Civil Code. It is neutral politically, and non-denominational, aim to empowering youth worldwide.

IYF was founded in 2014 to oversee international youth participations, empowering youth and encouraging their engagement among the national youth associations. Member countries must each also be engaged through the six world regions into which the world is divided: Africa, Asia, Europe, North & Central America and the Caribbean, Oceania and South America.

Guided by IYF empowering youth worldwide vision along with UN Sustainable Development Global Goals, IYF works through senior Youth Representatives from all the countries as advocacy group for the Global Goals among youth.

The IYF comes from the need for a collective and better understanding of what youth participation involves, how it can be implemented for all youth ages. A call for inclusive youth participation within community activities, governments, policy/decision makers and CSO’s makes a case for stronger gender parity and especially on young women’s participation. Focusing on participation of other marginalized groups of youth such as youth with disabilities, indigenous youth, migrant youth, youth affect by conflict and post conflict situation, youth affected by HIV, etc. We recognized that young people are a major human resource for development and key agents for social change, economic growth and technological innovation.
