/ For ENL Members

ENL offers its member organisations both guardianship and several opportunities for cooperation and development:

  • guardianship at both national and local levels

  • network, cooperation opportunities and contacts – almost 120 youth organisations (youth associations and participatory assemblies) are involved in ENL to a greater or lesser extent, operating across Estonia and involving thousands of young people in their activities.

  • Via ENL, one may find new and useful partners either for a single project or for a longer period of time.

  • development activities and a number of trainings;

  • counselling and support in daily work;

  • various discounts on the services and products of cooperation partners support in publishing information about your organisation;

  • chance to participate in projects in abroad;

In order for the information between the member and the ENL office to flow better and the communication to be smoother, each member has a contact person who is a member of the association (management board) or a volunteer who:

  • is responsible for the communication between ENL and the association;
  • mediates information between ENL and the association;
  • represents the association at ENL events (incl. at the general meeting);
  • is updated on the activities and positions of ENL and its association.


An important objective of ENL is to represent the common interest of its members and to create a favourable operating environment. Guardianship takes place in cooperation between ENL member organisations, the team and partners.
