Brussels Offerings

YPFP Brussels officially became a member of YPFP's global branch in 2008 with a small team of engaged young people. 12 years later, we now boast 300 members, with a team of more than 25 volunteers organizing over 40 events per year, including high-level panel debates, Ambassador's round-tables, professional development workshops, and social events.

Tools of the Trade Series provides practical workshops on career skills for YPFP members and are led by seasoned professionals willing to share tips and advice in their realms of expertise.

Ambassador Series offers YPFP members the chance to meet with Ambassadors (of the EU and beyond) in a “fireside chat” setting to discuss their countries’ stances on foreign policy issues. 

Briefing Series Lectures on today’s most pressing current events making the headlines that provide YPFP members with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the subject addressed.

YPFP Brussels has an extensive history of hosting compelling events with Ambassadors from Canada, Australia, Qatar, Israel and Turkey. We have also partnered with NATO, the US Embassy to the EU, members of the European Parliament and the Benelux Union.
