Children & Youth in Community

~ empowerment, belonging and engagement



Erasmus+ offers great opportunities for young people in the UK to volunteer abroad or train abroad and increase youth participation in policy-making.
For more information on Erasmus+ go to the UK’s new user friendly website!
You can also check this Prezi created by a friend in the Irish National Agency….
Or go have a look at the official video explaining what Erasmus+ is all about.

salto is a network of 8 Resource Centres working on European priority areas within the youth field. It provides youth work and training resources and organises training and contact-making activities to support organisations and National Agencies within the frame of the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Youth programme and beyond.
To get all the projects straight to your inbox, sign up on the Salto Website!
You can also check our Facebook Page as we will post our recommended trainings there.



We have some fantastic Training Courses of our own coming up this year – and lots of partnerships for training courses that we can send young people and youth workers to. Check the Erasmus+ Projects page for info on current, upcoming and past trainings and partnerships.

If you would like to volunteer somewhere in Europe then the European Voluntary Service (EVS) will be able to help. For this you will need to be between 18 and 30 years old. Through the EVS programme you may go to different parts of Europe, learn another language, make lifelong friends, and learn something through voluntary work that you can bring home to teach others. You may be involved in work relating to the environment, art, culture, activities with children, working with young people, working with the elderly, heritage, sports, or leisure activities. You will also have your travel, food and accommodation paid for, plus a small subsistence allowance, so it won’t cost you a penny to do.

For more information visit the main website here, or visit the British Council’s website on EVS.
