Velos Youth is a non profit-organisation founded in 2017, to support children and young people on the move to re-start and re-build their lives.

Our work centres around a safe space in central Athens for young people aged 16-23 years old, which offers a range of emotional, material and specialist support services, as well as support to access to existing state and non-government services. We work with young people to help them reimagine their futures, and take the next steps towards achieving their goals and aspirations. 

We are a response to the evolving needs of newly arrived young people in urban Athens and a place where they can come together as persons – not profiles – to understand and practice both difference and unity.
