JEF has about 15,000 members in 30+ autonomous national sections, which are coordinated by the European umbrella organisation, JEF Europe.

While JEF Europe was founded in 1972, its sections have been operating continuously since the end of the Second World War, making it the oldest pro-European and only federalist youth organisation.

JEF Belgium is the youth Committee of the European Movement in Belgium (EMB), the Belgian national section of the European Movement International.

The European Movement in Belgium strives for a united and democratic Europe since 1949. It is a non-profit association that supports European integration by engaging as many citizens as possible in the process.

UEF Belgium is the national section of the Union of European Federalists (UEF), of which JEF Europe is the autonomous young branch (we hope you still follow at this point!).

UEF was founded shortly after World War II, in the belief that only by uniting into a European Federation could the states of Europe overcome the divisions of the past and ensure a future of peace and economic prosperity.

JEF Belgium often exchanges and partners with UEF Belgium on various events and policy work.

The European Youth Forum is the platform of youth organisations in Europe. It represents over 100 youth organisations (including JEF), which bring together tens of millions of young people from all over Europe.

The Youth Forum works to empower young people to participate actively in society to improve their own lives by representing and advocating their needs and interests and those of their organisations.
