Youth Workers' Mobility

What is the aim?

Opportunities abroad allow youth workers to learn about cultural diversity and different practices in youth work in other countries. This experience helps youth workers to acquire new skills and to enhance their professional development.

The organisations involved develop new learning methods, as well as long-term cooperation with their counterparts abroad.

What does Erasmus+ support?

The following mobility opportunities are available across the EU, and to/from non-EU countries:

  • Training and networking abroad;
  • Job shadowing or periods in a youth organisation abroad.

Funding is available for youth worker mobility from 2 days to 8 weeks.

Who can take part?

Opportunities are available for youth workers involved in the personal, educational and social development of young people.

140,000 youth workers are expected to benefit from mobility projects in the period 2014-2020.
