Velos Youth is a non profit-organisation founded in May 2017 with the ultimate overall purpose being to create “safe spaces for children and young people on the move” regardless of their race, religion, social background, etc.

Our youth centre is a safe space in the heart of Athens for young people aged 16-21 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 changing outlook 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.
