Lithuanian Youth Society in Sweden (LYSS) is an organisation that unites and represents Lithuanian young people studying and living in Sweden.

We provide opportunities for young lithuanians to meet other active people, to participate in entertainment, cultural, sport and societal events, training or meetings with interesting people. We unite people who are 16-35 years old, mainly based in Stockholm, but enthusiastic people from other areas are also welcome to join.

If you are interested in communicating in lithuanian, taking part in various events, meeting new people as well as gaining some new experience and bringing your ideas to life – join us now!


Our organisation was founded in 2014 by a handful of friends who started organising informal events. As the years went by, small gatherings grew into big events and activities, such as public meetings with interesting people, hikes, sport and cultural events etc. During the last few years our community has become significantly larger, therefore every new member can build or expand their network as well as find some interesting activities.


Here are the main volunteers who organise activities of Lithuanian Youth Society in Sweden. Also, we unite over a 100 oficial members and we keep on growing!
