Within JEF Maastricht, there’s a plentitude of possibilities to participate, learn and grow. Next to taking part in our events, you can volunteer in one of our Working Groups and develop yourself through participating in local, national and international training opportunities and youth exchanges.

We want to bring the world of politics to all young people in Maastricht. This is why you can also contribute through teaching how the EU works in a non-formal style to school students in our “Europe@School” sessions. Or you can present the topic you’re passionate about to students in Maastricht in one of our “Europe Meets” sessions. Whether you want to contribute to the European idea on a local, national or global level – with JEF you can participate and grow at all stages.
