Relevance. Pierre de Coubertin was the founder of the modern Olympic Games. His "Olympism" is a term that is difficult to define. That is why we use a model based on the multi-perspective approach created by German sports pedagogy to find out that Sinnperspektiven (the perspective of the senses) will create an educational surplus. Goal. Based on this definition of Olympism, we carefully consider the intent and implementation of the Youth Olympic Games (UOI) held since 2010. We do not analyze the results of the sports activities of talented young athletes, but focus on the preparation of athletes for the UOI, and their opportunities to become ambassadors of the "Cou-bertin" Olympism. Research methods. The multi-perspective approach refers to the principle of describing a phenomenon (Sinnperspektiven) by considering the various points of view through which this (phenomenon) can influence the feelings and contribute to the development of its students. Results. The study examines four main historical roots, as well as five specific perspectives of feelings, systematized through their connections. Conclusions. In conclusion, the use of the UOI to promote Olympic education, as was one of the IOC's goals, is a step in the right direction. However, the educational efforts of the UOI could be more effective if the Youth Games were not focused primarily on promising talents of the sports world, but rather took into account the interests and ambitions of teenagers who seek to instill the Olympic spirit and values in their communities (countries, states).
