Velos Youth is a non profit-organisation founded in May 2017, with the ultimate goal of supporting children and young people on the move to re-start and re-build their lives.

Our work centres around a safe space in the heart of Athens for young people aged 16-23 years old, providing a range of emotional, material and specialist support services, as well as facilitating access to existing state and non-government services. 

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