The one to know
I can benefit of it if
I am a young person aged 13-30.
I can leave for:
From 5 to 21 days.
I can go
In any EU country and partner country of the Erasmus+ programme (almost the whole world).
I will receive
Complete financial support. I may have to pay a small part of my travel costs. Information on how to create a Youthpass, a recognition tool for the skills and learnings acquired during the exchange.
When I come back, I’ll have gained
New competences and life skills
Awareness about other cultures and socially relevant topics
A network of like-minded young people with whom I can develop further projects
Awareness of the European Union youth programme and opportunities
Confidence to undertake long-term mobility
I need to prepare
I need to contact a youth or voluntary organisation who is willing to support my project idea or I need to find a organisation who is already engaged in Youth Exchanges. When I found an organisation which is willing to support me, I can either propose my own project idea or participate in an ongoing Youth Exchange project.
For help I should contact
My national or local Eurodesk contact point, the National Agency for the Erasmus+ youth programmes or any youth or voluntary organisation I know in my local community.
Not only you can participate in projects organised by youth organisations, but you can organise your own youth exchange with a group of friends. National Agencies in each country are in charge for helping you organise such projects.
