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 from different countries in the fields of 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.
Strategic Partnerships in youth can last between 6 months and 2 years and are a flexible way of working with partners from different countries. Activities could take the form of:
Youth organisations based in the EU and outside the EU as well as other stakeholders with an active interest in youth issues. Informal groups of young people are also eligibile to apply for funding for transnational youth initiative under this Action. 7,000 strategic partnership projects are expected to benefit in the period 2014-2020.
