Since 2006, Netherlands Atlantic Youth has been a subcommittee of the Netherlands Atlantic Association. It aims to increase awareness among students and young professionals and to increase their involvement in common transatlantic security issues.
Netherlands Atlantic Youth is a platform for dialogue on the future of NATO, not only for young people in the Netherlands, but also for those in other NATO and Partnership for Peace countries. In order to meet these goals, Netherlands Atlantic Youth organizes various national and international events that are aimed at a young audience (from 18–35 years), and it does so in cooperation with various partner organizations.
Netherlands Atlantic Youth is the official Dutch member of the Young Atlantic Treaty Association (YATA).
