YOUTH LEAGUE OF EPIRUS
On 14 May 2008, the Youth League of Epirus was formed as an Incorporated Association under the statutes of the State of Victoria. It applied to become a member of the Panepirotic Federation of Australia and was accepted unanimously.
The Youth League of Epirus is comprised of young, Australian-born students and porfessionals who wish to reinterpret, preserve and celebrate aspects of their unique Epirot heritage. In creating social and professional networks among all Greek-Australian youth, regardless of origin, they seek to ensure that the unique Epirotic identity, a culmination of 3,000 years of history and tradition, continues to remain relevant to Australian-born generations, whose contact with the motherland is limited.
In June a successful and well attended youth event was held in which strategies for the future development of youth participation on the P.F.A were discussed.
