the springboard of the new generation

We are the springboard of the new generation. We want to do something for the world. Start small and grow big. Joining is easy. Do something great and make others feel better. Or become a changemaker in our network, and we’ll change the world together. Life is about being bold. Let’s do it.

who are we

The Dutch National Youth Council ( NJR) is the umbrella organization of 35 national youth organizations, making it the largest youth network in the Netherlands. We strive towards a world where all young people feel at home, can bring out the best in themselves, and have a positive impact on each other and their world. On a daily basis, we work with and engage in conversations with various young people. By and for young people: that has been our expertise for many years. Therefore, we know what is happening and what is important.
