Youth capacities projects will:

  • Foster cooperation and exchanges in the field of youth between programme countries and partner countries;
  • Improve the quality and recognition of youth work, non-formal learning and volunteering in partner countries and enhance their synergies and complementarities with other education systems, the labour market and society;
  • Foster the development, testing and launching of schemes and programmes of non-formal learning mobility at regional level;
  • Promote transnational non-formal learning mobility between programme and partner countries, especially targeting young people with fewer opportunities, with a view to improving participants' level of competences and fostering their active participation in society.

Projects are transnational and must involve a minimum of three participating organisations from three different countries, including at least one programme country and one eligible partner country. Projects activities may vary depending on the participating partner countries. Projects may last between nine months and two years.

Each grant is worth up to €150,000, which can represent up to 80 per cent of the total costs.
