About Youth in Action
Youth in Action is funded by the European Union and provides young people aged between 13 and 30 years with a variety of opportunities for non-formal and formal learning with a European / international dimension.
The Youth in Action programme gives young people an opportunity to experience other cultures and countries. These programmes range from group exchanges and youth initiatives to individual voluntary service. The programme also provides funding to help people working in the youth sector develop skills and establish contacts necessary to enhance their work.
To find out more detailed information about the programme visit the British Council website.
This gives more information on the different ‘Actions’ within the programme that individuals and groups can apply for, a detailed programme guide, application forms and application guidance as well as some helpful FAQs.
There is also helpful information on the European Union Website.
