The Youth Events

Every year one of OIFE’s member organizations hosts the OIFE Youth Event. This is an informal meeting for young people with OI. The age limit has varied, but the event is usually open to people between the age 18 and 35.

The main goal of the OIFE Youth Events is to gather youth from all over Europe to exchange thoughts and ideas about being young with OI and to network in order to engage future volunteers. The video below is from our youth week-end in 2017, that took place in the Netherlands.
