The Youth Organisation Freedom and Democracy (Dutch: Jongerenorganisatie Vrijheid en Democratie, JOVD) is a Dutch political youth organisation. The JOVD cooperates with the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD), but is a politically independent organisation. Having trained many well known members of the House of Representatives, as well as ministers and the current Prime Minister, the JOVD is a well renowned political school. The JOVD is a member of the liberal umbrella organisations European Liberal Youth (LYMEC) and International Federation of Liberal Youth (IFLRY).
