The EU programme 'Youth in Action' helps young people to develop their skills and to improve their chances on the labour market.
The Programme promotes, among others, cultural diversity, social inclusion, European citizenship and participation of young people in democratic processes at local, national and EU levels.
If you have an interesting project in mind, the Youth in Action programme can be a useful tool for you. If you are planning to start your project between 1 January and 30 June 2014, the deadline for submitting applications at decentralised level, the 1st of October 2013, is approaching!
For more information about the programme, the criteria and conditions on how to participate, consult the Programme Guide.
As the programme is mainly implemented in a decentralised way through a network of National Agencies, you can also contact, for further information, the National Agency in your country. The list of all National Agencies is available here.
