Velos Youth participates in and shares its work through many different forums and co-ordination platforms including UNHCR-led Education and Child Protection meetings.

In 2018, Velos Youth presented it’s work on Education Engagement at the Greece National Education Sector Working Group (see here). Velos Youth was also invited to present our work and views on minors’ detention in Greece at the 2018 NEXUS Global Summit.

We also participate in the Athens Municipality ACCMR Urbanisation, Livelihoods and Education meetings, and in Grassroots coordination education and general assembly meetings.

The Athens Coordination Center for Migrant and Refugee issues (ACCMR) is an initiative of the City of Athens, established with a donation from Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the coordination of the Athens Partnership.

We are engaged in the Athens refugee services community and work closely with other organisations in this area to best support young people.
