The Board works closely together with the various local groups, known as sections. The section head and the Board together form the Grand Council which meets once a month at the TYAE office in Zurich. The 10 sections in Switzerland, Germany and Austria make up the heart of the Association. The section members meet monthly where they draw up their own projects and implement or support campaigns of the association. It is a place where you can exchange ideas with fellow Tibetans about the country of your parents and new friendships can be formed.
In addition to the section membership, there is also the opportunity to be active as an individual member of the Association.
