Get involved with Youth in Action

You can make a difference to young people in your community by setting up a community project with the Youth in Action Programme. It's not as hard as it might sound!

The EU’s Youth in Action programme offers financial support for youth projects that inspire a sense of active European citizenship, solidarity and tolerance among young Europeans. You can read about good practice projects to be inspired by what others have done already.

 

Getting started – How to develop a project?

Think carefully about your objectives: What do you want to achieve? How do your objectives reflect the interests and real needs of young people? If you have an idea which you think may qualify for funding, you can read the Youth in Action Programme Guide to ensure that your project is covered by the programme or contact the National Agency in your Country.

 

Finding a partner organisation

A European project should always involve partners i.e. other organisations that share your ideas and are willing to work with you towards common goals.  Eurodesk can help you to find a suitable partner and you can also search the OTLAS partner database.

 

Help and advice

The Youth in Action Programme provides guidance through all phases of a project's development. You can seek assistance through the Youth in Action National Agencies and the Eurodesk Network.
