Cyprus Youth Clubs Organization

Cyprus Youth Clubs Organisation (KOKEN) is the coordinating body of 105 Youth Clubs in Cyprus with more than 8000 members in urban and rural areas of the Republic of Cyprus. The main aim of KOKEN is to offer opportunities to young Cypriots to develop their skills and attitudes and to promote active participation in local, national and international level.
KOKEN supports permanent and periodic activities of the youth clubs in the following fields: sports, culture, non formal education, European projects, health prevention, human rights, environment and volunteering.
We have solid experience in the implementation of various European projects in the past 6 years. We have implemented Youth in Action projects, Grundtvig project and we have participated in various projects abroad as well. The impact of our activities and projects reaches almost every corner of the Republic of Cyprus because of the number of youth clubs and the network of partner organisations.
Cyprus Youth Clubs Organisation is a member of the counseling body of the Youth board of Cyprus and an active member of the Cyprus Youth Council. In European level KOKEN is a member of the European Confederation of Youth Clubs (ECYC).
Our Organisation has gained solid experience in the field of European projects. With the support of the European Programme “Youth in Action” we have implemented projects under Training Courses, Youth Exchanges, Youth Initiatives, EVS projects, Partnerships, and Cooperation with Neighboring Countries. We carried out training courses on subjects such as: Youth Participation, Skills Development for Youth Workers, Sex Education, Employment, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership.
We have also implemented a Grundtvig Workshop under the Lifelong Learning Programme for Sharing Learning in Communities.
