Erasmus+ youth funding

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. Each year, UK youth organisations and young people can access Erasmus+ funding to support life-changing international opportunities.

For organisations, it helps to develop capacity, initiate international partnerships, and offer new opportunities to young people. As an individual, you can add to your understanding of other cultures, while gaining knowledge, skills and experience of value to your career. Erasmus+ is especially beneficial for disadvantaged and vulnerable young people, who might otherwise miss out on opportunities for international experience. Through Erasmus+:
  • Youth organisations can collaborate with international partners: to develop their capacity and offer new opportunities to young people
  • Young people can experience life in another European country: to share interests and concerns with their counterparts through a youth exchange
  • Youth workers and staff can job shadow or train abroad: to develop their professional practice, build relationships with international peers and gain new ideas
  • Young people can interact and debate with decision-makers: in order to make a difference on issues that affect them
Youth funding
Apply for youth mobility funding
Organisations working with young people outside the formal education sector can apply to the youth strand of Erasmus+. Funds are given to support activity called learning mobility which is a planned learning activity in another country.

Apply for partnership funding
UK organisations/groups of young people active in youth work can apply for funding under Key Action 2 for activities which are part of a Strategic Partnership for Youth.

Apply for youth dialogue funding
Key Action 3 Structured Dialogue projects give young people the opportunity to interact and debate with decision-makers on the issues that affect them most and to influence policy.

European Solidarity Corps
The European Solidarity Corps is a new European Union initiative that brings together young people to build a more inclusive society, supporting vulnerable people and responding to the challenges facing society across the continent.

It offers an inspiring and empowering experience for young people who want to help, learn and develop by funding a range of opportunities across a broad range of areas, such as integration of migrants, environmental challenges, prevention of natural disasters, education and youth activities or measures to prevent radicalisation. The European Solidarity Corps has a proposed overall budget of €375.6 million until 2020.

SALTO developed the Youthpass initiative, which links to Key Action 1 youth mobility activities and on the SALTO website you can also find a tools section, which lists Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCA), among things, to help with your youth project and activities.

Youthpass is a European recognition tool for non-formal and informal learning in youth work, developed by SALTO, initially for the Youth in Action programme. Youthpass is for projects funded by Erasmus+ youth programmes and helps the participants of those projects to record their learning and skills development, which could then be used to support job applications or applications for further courses for example.
