European Year of Youth

Erasmus+ 2021-2027

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It provides funding and support for organisations to carry out projects that match its objectives, and that encourage European exchange, co-operation and learning.

Erasmus+ Opportunities for Youth Workers, Organisations and Young People

Youth workers and young people can travel to another country for training or exchange. This is a 'Mobility Project', part of Erasmus+ Key Action 1. Youth organisations can collaborate with other relevant organisations to achieve a shared goal or share good practices. These are 'Cooperation Partnerships', part of Erasmus+ Key Action 2. Youth workers, Youth managers and others involved in youth work can take part in short Training courses and Cooperation Activities, both in Ireland and in other countries. Many are open to newcomers, so you do not need to be part of an existing Erasmus+ project.

European Solidarity Corps

Young people aged 18 to 30 can volunteer in projects that meet community needs, or set up their own ‘Solidarity’ project to address an issue they are concerned about. Youth organisations can send or receive volunteers as part of the programme.

European Solidarity Corps

Eurodesk

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.

YouthWork and You

This instruction module for youth workers and youth organisations is part of the youthworkandyou.org project, a collaboration between Léargas, NYCI and Maynooth University. It is designed to enhance understanding of international youth work in the context of European programmes. It explores what is meant by international youth work and its impact on youth workers, organisations and young people.
