The RUF Global Youth Board aims to empower the Romanian global diaspora youth by fostering a unified, supportive, and thriving community through innovative educational initiatives. Our mission is to connect, engage, and inspire future generations of Romanian youth living abroad, offering them a cohesive platform to access educational resources, develop essential skills, and build a strong sense of cultural identity and belonging.

2024 RUF Global Youth Board


The RUF Global Youth Board is composed of dynamic young leaders from the Romanian global diaspora. Members are nominated by RUF's diaspora partners worldwide and undergo an annual approval process by RUF's Education Board.

Each partner organization can propose at most one member of the board, and at most one young leader can be selected from each local community. This process ensures that the board represents a diverse and dedicated group of individuals committed to fostering community, education, and cultural engagement among Romanian youth worldwide.
