1. Youth Policy Governance

Last update: 5 March 2024

Although there’s no definition by law for the Greek Youth and its age limits, age group 15 to 29 years old is the most commonly used in governmental strategy documents and researches.

The main official authority that forms youth policies in Greece, is the General Secretariat of Demographic and Housing Policy, part of the Hellenic Ministry of Social Cohesion and Family. Its mission is planning, coordinating, monitoring and evaluating policies, actions and programmes in the respective fields, with no discrimination or exclusion. The General Secretariat of Demographic and Housing Policy works according to a new model of youth support, which fosters collaboration with municipalities to promote the active participation of young people at local level, support of youth organisations through EU programmes, participation in the EU Youth Dialogue, volunteering, youth work, cultural and artistic creativity of young people.

A national youth strategy exists in Greece and is included in the Strategic Plan for Vocational Education Training, Lifelong Learning and Youth 2022-2024, issued by the ΜοΕ in January 2022.
