The projects funded under this Key Action will focus on sharing, developing and transferring innovative practices between participating countries.
Strategic partnerships foster cooperation between organisations in different countries engaged in youth work and non-formal learning for young people.
By working together, the organisations involved will develop new approaches to youth work and encourage cooperation over longer periods.
Young people benefitting from the projects will learn about social entrepreneurship and be encouraged to take a more active role in their local economy and society.
To be eligible for funding, strategic partnerships for youth should last from 6 months to 2 years and involve partners from at least two different countries. They should foster:
Youth organisations based in and outside the EU as well as other stakeholders involved in youth issues. Informal groups of young people are also eligible to apply for funding for transnational youth initiatives. 7,000 strategic partnership projects are expected to benefit in the period 2014-2020.
