Danish Youth Council

DUF is an umbrella organisation for more than 70 volunteer organisations working with children and young people in Denmark.

The Danish Youth Council is an umbrella organisation and common platform for around seventy volunteer organisations working with children and young people in Denmark.

DUF's member organisations are extremely diverse, but do have one thing in common: They all share the basic ideal of volunteer work with young people and children.

Our member organisations conduct activities in a wide range of areas reflecting diverse interests and foci: youth exchanges, politics, scouting, education, religion, youth clubs, music, the environment, theatre, and much more. They all share the aim of encouraging the active involvement and participation of children and young people, not just in specific activities, but in society in general.

Democracy and the participation of children and young people lie at the heart of DUF’s work at all levels, from local chapters in Denmark to the European Union and the United Nations.
