Youth Exchanges are meetings of groups of young people from at least two different countries who gather for a short period to implement jointly a non-formal learning programme (a mix of workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, simulations, outdoor activities, etc.) on a topic of their interest. In youth exchange you can participate in your country or in a foreign country for period between 5 -21 days. The age limit requirements are 13-30 years old for the participants and no age limit for the group leader.
This Action supports the professional development of youth workers and thereby the development of quality youth work at local, regional, national, European and international level, through non-formal and informal learning experiences in mobility activities. The Action contributes to the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027, particularly to the European Youth Work Agenda2 for quality, innovation and recognition of youth work.
Erasmus+ supports youth-driven local, national and transnational participation projects run by informal groups of young people and/or youth organisations encouraging youth participation in Europe’s democratic life and following one or more of the following objectives:
- provide young people with opportunities to engage and learn to participate in civic society;
- raise young people’s awareness about European common values and fundamental rights and contribute to the European integration process;
- develop young people’s digital competences and media literacy;
- ring together young people and decision makers at local, regional, national and transnational level and/or contribute to the EU Youth Dialogue;
- Bulgarians living abroad can apply in projects that seek Bulgarian participants as long as they live within the EU; OR they can apply for the project from the country they are currently residing.
For example, if Bulgarian lives in Spain and wants to take part in YE/TC etc, can apply as a Spanish participant.
- Foreigners living in Bulgaria need to have proof of residence/ proof of address that states they currently live in Bulgaria.
