Youth in Action is a programme for all! It promotes mobility within and beyond the EU borders, non-formal learning and intercultural dialogue, and encourages the inclusion of all young people, regardless of their educational, social and cultural background.

Youth for Europe aims to reinforce the active civic participation of young people by supporting appropriate exchanges, mobility and initiatives for young people and their projects.
