PYN activities are divided into three fields: human rights, regional programmes and capacity building. Key issues and topics of the PYN activities include a commitment to human rights protection; support to the process of regional cooperation; dedication to the active participation of youth in decision-making processes; and improvement of the position of youth branches within political parties.

All the activities of PYN are planned and discussed among the PYN Secretariat and PYN members. Most of the planned activities are implemented through campaigns, meetings, and workshops with regional conferences being one of the most important activities in the scope of the network.
