Erasmus+ supports non-formal learning mobility of young people in the form of Youth Exchanges, with the objective to engage and empower young people to become active citizens, connect them to the European project as well as to help them acquire and develop competences for life and their professional future. More specifically, Youth Exchanges aim to:
– foster intercultural dialogue and learning and feeling of being European;
– develop skills and attitudes of young people;
– strengthen European values and breaking down prejudices and stereotypes;
– raise awareness about socially relevant topics and thus stimulate engagement in society and active participation.
The Action is open to all young people, with a special focus on those with fewer opportunities.
