EU Grant For Capacity Building In The Field of Youth | Diplomacy Opportunities

Capacity-building projects in the field of youth cover a range of activities that encourage cooperation between organisations active in youth, education, training and other socio-economic sectors in Programme and Partner Countries from different regions of the world.

These projects aim to recognize and improve youth work, non-formal learning and volunteering and link them to education systems and the labour market. They also support regional and transnational non-formal learning mobility schemes to encourage the participation of youth in society.

Capacity-building should carry out the following activities:

  • Promote cooperation between:
    • youth organisations and public authorities in Partner Countries
    • youth organisations in education and training and the business and labour market
  • Strengthen youth councils, youth platforms and authorities in Partner Countries (local, regional, national)
  • Support the overall operation of youth organisations in Partner Countries
  • Help implement youth work practices which include:
    • tools for the development of youth works and trainers,
    • non-formal learning methods to improve skills,
    • new training schemes, flexible learning, virtual mobility and better ICT
    • peer learning activities to improve the leadership of youth organisations
