European Service Center for the Bonn Process

The European Service Centre for the Bonn Process is a unit within JUGEND für Europa, German National Agency for the EU youth programmes Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps.

Together with the German Federal Youth Ministry, we were the hosts of the 3rd European Youth Work Convention and feel committed to the Bonn Process. That’s why we have decided to take responsibility for supporting the Bonn Process beyond the 3rd Convention itself.

Our mission is to help make the Bonn Process a vibrant community process.

Our mission is to help make the Bonn Process a vibrant community process. To us, it is capable of leading to a future in which youth work is recognised, visible, innovative, future-fit and well-provided. In this future, youth work is accessible to all young people in all their diversity through quality youth work activities. It is appreciated as a valuable contributor to a democratic, social, sustainable and peaceful Europe.
