Why is it worth taking part in Erasmus+ programme?

On the 13th,14th, and 15th of October, we are celebrating Erasmus+ Days. It is the best opportunity to present the advantages of taking part in projects within the Erasmus+ programme!

Erasmus + offers a great variety of different projects and initiatives. While talking about Erasmus+ projects in the youth sector the most popular types of projects are youth exchanges and mobilities of youth workers.

Youth exchanges take place outside the school environment. On a youth exchange, you can expect to participate in activities such as workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, outdoor activities, and more. They last between 5 and 21 days. This excludes traveling time. Youth exchanges are open to people between the ages of 13 and 30. To be a group leader in a youth exchange, you must be at least 18 years old.

Mobilities of youth workers this action supports the professional development of youth workers and thereby the development of quality youth work at local, regional, national, European, and international levels, through non-formal and informal learning experiences in mobility activities.

Of course there are more types of projects like: Erasmus+ Sport, capacity building in the field of youth, European Youth Together, strategic partnerships in the field of youth, internships, European Solidarity Corps, etc.  When it comes to the topics of those projects there is a great variety of them, for example: ecology, entrepreneurship, gender equality, women rights, critical thinking, digital tools, active citizenship, healthy lifestyle and many more!

Why is it worth to take part in the projects implemented via Erasmus+ programme? 

-> You have the chance to meet new people, broaden your horizons, and establish new friendships

-> You will be able to discover new cultures, become more aware of cultural identity and intercultural aspects

-> Taking part in Erasmus+ projects is a great opportunity to improve your language skills!

-> Traveling to different destinations, getting to know new places

-> You are learning how to improve your self-confidence and you discover what would you like to do in the future

-> Participation in the Erasmus+ projects fosters your personal development

To sum up, participation in any Erasmus+ project is an unforgettable experience, but before it happens, there is hard work of whole NGOs teams and project partners to prepare the project proposal, submit it, then implement and at the end provide the report. That’s why, here the big applause for all those people who work really hard in order to make you Erasmus+ experience  come true!!
