The European Young Olympic Ambassador programme of the European Olympic Committees

The fourth edition of the European Young Olympic Ambassador (EYOA) programme takes place this week in Vuokatti, during the European Winter Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF). Organised under the auspices of the Committee on Culture and Education of the European Olympic Committees (EOC), the EYOA programme aims to promote and strengthen the Olympic Values of excellence, friendship and respect among young athletes participating in the EYOF.

The EYOA Programme invests in a group of young people who are inspired by sport and the Olympic Values and wish to contribute to building a strong foundation based on value for the international sports community. In Vuokatti, there are over 20 young people participating in the program, divided into alumni and ambassadors. Ambassadors are new to the program and are responsible for creating and implementing activities, which graduates oversee using their experience from previous editions. The EYOA brings together young people aged 18-25, some of whom come from elite athletic backgrounds and all share the same passion, energy, motivation and desire to inspire young athletes to follow the Olympic Values on and off the field.
