Erasmus+ - Key Action 2 - Capacity Building in the field of youth
Deadline: Apr 3, 2016  

 Capacity Building
 Education and Training
 Youth Exchanges

Capacity Building projects are transnational cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme and Partner Countries.

Youth Capacity Building projects aim to:

  • foster cooperation and exchanges in the field of youth between Programme Countries and Partner Countries from different regions of the world
  • 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 (i.e. within and across regions of the world)
  • promote transnational non-formal learning mobility between Programme and Partner Countries, notably targeting young people with fewer opportunities, with a view to improving participants' level of competences and fostering their active participation in society

    The following activities can be implemented within a Capacity Building project:

    Capacity Building activities

    • activities encouraging policy dialogue, cooperation, networking and exchanges of practices in the field of youth, such as conferences, workshops and meetings;
    • large-scale youth events (maximum duration of 2 days);
    • information and awareness campaigns;
    • development of information, communication and media tools;
    • development of youth work methods, tools and materials, as well as youth work curricula,  training modules and documentation instruments such as Youthpass;
    • creation of new forms of delivering youth work and providing training and support, notably  through open and flexible learning materials, virtual cooperation and open educational resources (OER).
