Teach for Youth -- Upgrade to Erasmus 2.0
Commission registration number: ECI(2013)000005
Date of registration: 17/06/2013
Eliminating educational inequity within the EU by enrolling highly motivated and high-achieving recent EU college graduates and postgraduates to teach for one to two years in urban and rural low-income communities throughout the EU.
The objective is threefold:
(1) Enabling recent college graduates and postgraduates to gain a real-life experience and the self-confidence that comes with it, thus making their later insertion on the job market easier;
(2) Enabling EU pupils who do not have access to equitable educational opportunities, notably learning another official language of the EU, to do so;
(3) Enabling those pupils who live in low-income areas to develop a real European sense of belonging – or affectio societatis – through contact between them and other EU citizens during their childhood and teenage hood.
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers:
Articles 165 and 166 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
