YES’s Partner Organisations

YES is the youth organisation of the Party of European Socialists and the S&D Group in the European Parliament. YES’s President, Laura Slimani, is a member of the PES Presidency and can introduce proposals for resolutions, amendments, etc. and thus ensure that the voice of Europe’s youth is represented within the PES.

YES is also the youth organisation of the S&D Group in the European Parliament. One example of a joint activity is the Winter University, which takes place every year at the European Parliament and consists of a series of conferences and workshops with Members of the European Parliament from the S&D Group.


Another important partner for YES is the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the progressive European political foundation. FEPS contributes to various YES activities with the participation of experts.

Among the close partners for YES is also SOLIDAR, a European network of NGOs that work to advance social justice in Europe and worldwide, and the PES Group in the Committee of the Regions.
