This Mobility Taster course gives you concrete examples of what is possible, brings you in contact with other inclusion youth organisations, shows you what funding is available specifically for youth inclusion projects and walks you step-by-step through the process in case you would like to give it a try.

Who is the Course For?

* This course is for Newcomers to Erasmus+ Youth who are directly working with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds (e.g. youth worker, social worker, refugee workers,…).

  • If you Never organised an international youth project with your target group before and would like to know what is possible, then this course is for you!
  • If you Already Have organised mobility projects for young people, please check the European Training Calendar for a more appropriate youth work training because this Mobility Taster is for Newcomers 😉
