SYF is a youth organisation working in the areas of peace, poverty reduction, women's empowerment and human rights.

Swat Youth Front (SYF) is a youth led non governmental organisation striving for peace, tolerance and human development in the Malakand region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa since 1997.

Under their Sports for Peace and Sports for Culture of Peace projects, SYF brought together 36 cricket teams, 24 football teams, and 36 volleyball teams within its Sports for Peace Network. The organisation provided the players with necessary sports equipment and uniforms, giving them the chance to play in a friendly environment. According to SYF, such activities revive and promote sports activities and provide a valuable tool for building peace by helping the victims of conflict to overcome trauma. In recognition of its innovative approach to peace, the project was recognised with an award from U.S Consulate Peshawar and The Common wealth Foundation.
