Let's get to know each other!

Our aims

We’re on a mission to:

  • Preserve our cultural roots and ethnic identity
  • Give young overseas Cypriots a voice
  • Support local Cypriot youth organisations
  • Create awareness of the cultural heritage of Cyprus and humanitarian ideals worldwide
  • Raise awareness of the Cyprus issue
  • Cultivate close and friendly relations between Cyprus and the countries where diaspora Cypriots live

Our activities

NEPOMAK is best defined by the activities we offer, which are as diverse as the needs of the young Cypriots that make up our membership. Our key activities are:

  • NEPOMAK Discover Cyprus Programme (NDCP) – a 3 week language course and tour of Cyprus. So far, we have awakened a passion for Cyprus in over 500 young Cypriots (and counting!).

  • NEPOMAK Professionals – we bring together young Cypriot professionals from across the world through various networking events.
  • The Cyprus Issue – we advocate for a free, united Cyprus to ensure a just and better future for all Cypriots.

  • OUC Scholarships – we provide opportunities to study a postgraduate level degree through distance learning courses offered by the Open University of Cyprus, on a fully-paid scholarship.
  • Internships – we have partnered with the Cypriot government, the United Nations in New York City and Cyprus Space Exploration Organisation to offer a variety of internship opportunities.
  • Local events run throughout the year – we bring together young Cypriots from across the globe, promoting Cypriot history and identity.
