A?enzija ?g?a?ag? also operates the Malta Youth Information website, which provides a wide range of information for young adults living on the islands, as well as links to dedicated community and support groups. The Malta Youth website also has a comprehensive and up-to-date diary of events taking place in Malta.

The European Youth Portal offers advice, information and opportunities for young adults across the EU.

Activities for Youth

The Maltese islands are small, but there is plenty to keep even the most active young adult busy. There are many water sports activities on offer – from windsurfing to sea-kayaking and jet-skiing. The more adventurous can try diving, water-skiing, wakeboarding, or paragliding; while other watersports, including water polo, yachting and sailing, canoeing and fishing, are also available. Malta also caters for regular outdoor sports ranging from football, golf, tennis and horse riding to archery, rugby, cricket and handball.

The European Youth Card

In October 2012, A?enzija ?g?a?ag?, became an official member of the European Youth Card Association (EYCA). Any resident of Malta aged between 13 and 30 is entitled to apply for the Maltese version of the card (ages for the card vary from one country to another), known as the Karta ?g?a?ag?.

To apply for the card, fill in the online form and submit the application to the A?enzija ?g?a?ag? with a passport-sized photograph, a photocopy of the ID card or passport (or birth certificate, if the applicant is under the age of 14), and the applicable fee. The card, which is valid for one year, entitles holders to many benefits and discounts including culture, travel, accommodation, shopping and services.

The card is also valid across Europe.
