For over forty years the Tibetan Youth Association in Europe (TYAE) has offered a platform for young Tibetans where they can engage politically. The TYAE seeks independent and youth-orientated answers to all questions related to Tibet. The desire to provide a service to the community has always been and still is, in the foreground.

Since its founding, the TYAE has set a goal to create a place where young Tibetans from all over Europe can meet and exchange. Together we strive to preserve and support Tibetan religion and culture.

The TYAE is the largest Tibetan youth organization in Europe. About half of the members are divided into sections according to interests and region. The rest of the members are involved as individual members. Based in Zurich, the TYAE has been worldwide active for over 40 years.
