In view of the decreased interest of the youth generation in folklore traditions and aware of these traditions significance for the preservation of intangible cultural heritage, in the beginning of 2011 the Union formed the Youth Working Group with the aim to contribute to the expansion of folklore activities through the group's experiences, ideas, and innovations.
The union maintains a Slovenian language website which offers an electronic Bulletin four times a year as well as the section "Groups on Tour", intended for reports from different (inter)national folklore festivals.
