Why Should I Get in Touch With Eurodesk?

Are you aged between 13 and 30? Are you eager to explore Europe? Maybe you would like to work, study or volunteer there in the future? Or perhaps you work with young people who want to experience a different aspect of European life?

If this sounds like you, but you’re unsure how to begin or where to find reliable guidance,  then Eurodesk is for you!  

 What is Eurodesk?

Very simply put, Eurodesk is a service designed to help you make the most of opportunities in Europe. 

It is an information network, operating in 36 European countries, aimed at young people and youth organisations. National and regional coordinators share information to help young people learn about opportunities in Europe including studying, working and volunteering abroad, and having their say in European youth policies and matters.

Eurodesk has young people’s interests at its heart. Connecting with Eurodesk will help you feel supported, empowered and invigorated about the possibilities on offer!


How Will Eurodesk Benefit Me?

Deciding to travel abroad is a big undertaking. Deciding to study, work or volunteer abroad is an even bigger one! Eurodesk Ireland is familiar with the uncertainty a young person might feel at the prospect of taking the plunge, and we are here to offer support on the journey!

Eurodesk Ireland offers tailored advice to young people and those who work with them. We aim to enable and encourage young people to find out about mobility opportunities and access support from the wider European network.

Not only can we help with initial queries, we also act as a gateway to a wealth of other information! We act as a reliable source for youth organisations to find information and updates from the European Commission, with a guarantee that this information is relevant to the youth field. Many countries also have national networks where organisations can share best practice, find partners for projects and arrange exchanges. In Ireland, Eurodesk information is provided by youth information centres, Europe Direct centres and young Eurodesk Ambassadors.

The Eurodesk network is truly local. Coordinators in each country offer a direct link to local and regional knowledge about opportunities, projects, and living standards for young people, and can offer guidance on European youth rights.

And remember: if information is power, you’ll be all the better equipped for your European adventure by engaging with Eurodesk. Why? Well, the service supports and contributes to the European Youth Portal, a European Commission website full of articles, news and events for young people. The site gives information around nine main themes, covers 33 countries and is available in 27 languages!

I’m Interested; What Now?

To get involved and find information about working, studying or volunteering in Europe, visit the Eurodesk Ireland website or call in to one of the Eurodesk multiplier information centres across the country! It’s as easy as that!
