WHAT IS A YOUTH EXCHANGE PROJECT

Sounds too good to be true? Well it is true with Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges

OFFICIAL DEFINITION OF YOUTH EXCHANGE

Youth exchanges allow groups of young people from different countries to meet and live together for up to 21 days. During a youth exchange, participants carry out a joint work programme (a mix of workshops, exercises, debates, roleplays, simulations, outdoor activities, etc.) that was designed and prepared by them before the exchange.

Youth exchanges help young people to:

  • develop competences
  • become aware of socially relevant topics/thematic areas
  • discover new cultures, habits and life-styles, mainly through peer-learning
  • strengthen values like solidarity, democracy, friendship, etc.
