focus on young people.
There are two types of learning mobility activities for youth: youth exchanges and training/networking for youth workers. Different activities can be combined into a mobility project, with a UK organisation or group working in partnership with one or more organisations from the Erasmus+ participating countries.
Youth exchanges allow groups of young people (aged 13 to 30) from different countries to meet and live together for up to 21 days. During a youth exchange, participants work together on a chosen topic through a mix of workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, simulations, outdoor activities etc. designed and prepared by them before the exchange.
Training and networking for youth workers
This activity supports the professional development of youth workers. They can take part in seminars, training courses, networking events, study visits, and job shadowing/observation. A youth worker mobility can last from two days to two months.
UK organisations active in the youth field can participate in a youth mobility project. Informal groups of young people are also eligible to apply for funding under some parts of this Key Action.
Please Note: As a general rule the Erasmus+ programme is open to programme countries which include member states of the European Union as well as non EU programme countries. Other countries can participate in the programme on a limited basis and may participate in certain actions or according to specific conditions, these are known as partner countries.
