About the Youth Commission
We believe that climbing and mountaineering are activities which give young people all over the world an opportunity to experience adventure and develop socially and educationally. Today’s children are the future of our sport and must be a priority. Therefore we encourage and help our member organisations to focus on youth. Read more in our mission, goals and objectives.
We in the commission assist member federations in establishing youth programmes and support existing ones. We help with the training and developing of youth leaders by organising international seminars and training courses. We also make guidelines which member federation can use to develop their own courses. The Youth Commission functions as a forum for the exchange of information on good practise, ideas and experience regarding youth and mountaineering.
Every year the UIAA and our member federations organise activities for young people and their leaders. Go to our activities page and calendar of events for more information.Youth Commission members can be found here.
