Capacity Building in the field of youth

What are the aims of a Capacity-building project?

Youth Capacity-building projects aim to:

  • foster cooperation and exchanges in the field of youth between Programme Countries and Partner Countries from different regions1 of the world;
  • improve the quality and recognition of youth work, non-formal learning and volunteering in Partner Countries and enhance their synergies and complementarities with other education systems, the labour market and society;
  • foster the development, testing and launching of schemes and programmes of non-formal learning mobility at regional level (i.e. within and across regions of the world);
  • promote transnational non-formal learning mobility between Programme and Partner Countries, especially targeting young people with fewer opportunities, with a view to improving participants' level of competences and fostering their active participation in society.
 

What is a Capacity-building project?

Capacity-building projects are transnational cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme and Partner Countries. They can also involve organisations from the fields of education and training, as well as from other socio-economic sectors.

 

What are the activities supported by a Capacity-building project?

Capacity-building projects should carry out activities that:

  • promote strategic cooperation between youth organisations on the one hand and public authorities in Partner Countries on the other hand;
  • promote the cooperation between youth organisations and organisations in the education and training fields as well as with representatives of business and labour market;
  • raise the capacities of youth councils, youth platforms and local, regional and national authorities dealing with youth in Partner Countries;
  • enhance the management, governance, innovation capacity and internationalisation of youth organisations in Partner Countries;
  • launch, test and implement youth work practices, such as:
  • tools and methods for the socio-professional development of youth workers and trainers;
  • non-formal learning methods, especially those promoting the acquisition/improvement of competences, including media literacy skills;
  • new forms of practical training schemes and simulation of real life cases in society; new forms of youth work, notably strategic use of open and flexible learning, virtual mobility, open educational resources (OER) and better exploitation of the ICT potential;
  • cooperation, networking and peer-learning activities fostering efficient management, internationalisation and leadership of youth work organisations.

 

The following activities can be implemented within a Capacity-building project:

Capacity-building activities

  • activities encouraging policy dialogue, cooperation, networking and exchanges of practices in the field of youth, such as conferences, workshops and meetings;
  • large-scale youth events;
  • information and awareness campaigns;
  • development of information, communication and media tools;
  • development of youth work methods, tools and materials, as well as youth work curricula, training modules and documentation instruments such as Youthpass;
  • creation of new forms of delivering youth work and providing training and support, notably through open and flexible learning materials, virtual cooperation and open educational resources (OER).

 

Mobility activities

  • Youth Exchanges2 between Programme and eligible Partner Countries;
  • Volunteering activities3 from/to eligible Partner Countries;
  • Mobility of youth workers4 between Programme and eligible Partner Countries.

 

Based on the geographical coverage, we distinguish four types of Capacity-building projects:

  • Capacity-building projects between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme Countries and in the Other Partner Countries (from Regions 5-14, see section "Eligible Countries" in Part A of this Guide)

These projects, submitted by organisations from Programme Countries, aim at increasing the capacity of organisations through the implementation of capacity-building activities and may include mobility activities.

 

  • Capacity-building projects between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme Countries and in the Partner Countries from the Western Balkans (Region 1 - see section "Eligible Countries" in Part A of this Guide) -  Western Balkans Youth Window projects

These projects, submitted by organisations based in the Western Balkans (Region 1), aim at increasing the capacity of youth organisations through the implementation of capacity-building activities and may include mobility activities.

 

  • Capacity-building projects between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme Countries and in the Eastern Partnership Partner Countries (Region 2 - see section "Eligible Countries" in Part A of this Guide) - Eastern Partnership Youth Window projects5

These projects, submitted by organisations based in Eastern Partnership countries (Region 2), aim at increasing the capacity of youth organisations through one of the following two project types:
 

- Civil Society Fellowships for Youth:

Inclusive and participatory projects will strengthen the capacity of youth organisations and youth workers to build constructive relations with a variety of partners, including public bodies and civil society organisations. Selected young leaders – the "Fellows" – coming from the applicant organisations, will enhance their skills and competences in the field of policy development, through mobility activities and working in hosting organisations in the Programme Countries. Activities have to involve transnational non-formal learning mobility activities, like, for example, mentorship schemes and job shadowing. As part of the project implementation, young leaders will also carry out small youth policy engagement projects upon return to their sending organisation.

- Partnership for Entrepreneurship:

Projects will promote youth entrepreneurship6 education and social entrepreneurship among young people through transnational non-formal learning projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations working in the mentioned areas, including business. Priority will be given to projects which offer practical solutions to social challenges present in the communities of origin and exploit the economic potential of the region also by involving the private sector. This type of project may also include mobility activities.

The European Commission envisages allocating about 60% of the available funds to "Civil Society Fellowships for Youth" and 40% to "Partnership for Entrepreneurship".

 

  • Capacity-building projects between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme Countries and  Tunisia 7

These projects, submitted by organisations based in Tunisia, aim at increasing the capacity of organisations through the implementation of capacity-building activities and may include mobility activities.

The projects under the three Windows - Western Balkans, Eastern Partnership countries, South-Mediterranean countries - mentioned above are submitted by organisations based in one of the respective Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU under the specific Window and may include partner organisations from other countries from the same region. The term 'Window' refers to the fact that additional EU funds are allocated to the Erasmus+ Programme to increase the opportunities for youth cooperation with Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU8.

 

What is the role of the organisations involved in a Capacity-building project?

A Capacity-building project is composed of:

  • Applicant/coordinator: organisation that submits the project proposal on behalf of all the partners. If the project is granted, the applicant/coordinator: 1) bears the financial and legal responsibility for the entire project towards the Executive Agency; 2) coordinates the project in cooperation with all other partners involved in the project; 3) receives the EU financial support from the Erasmus+ Programme and is responsible for distributing the funds among partners involved in the project.
  • Partners: organisations that contribute actively to the preparation, implementation and evaluation of the Capacity-building project.
  • Affiliated entities (optional): Organisations which contribute to the achievement of project objectives and activities. Affiliated entities must be identified in the grant application and satisfy the requirements as described in Annex III (Glossary of terms) of this Programme Guide.

If the project foresees the implementation of Youth Exchanges, Volunteering activities and/or mobility of youth workers, the participating organisations involved in these activities assume the following roles and tasks:

  • Sending organisation: in charge of sending young people abroad (this includes: organising practical arrangements; preparing participants before departure; providing support to participants during all the phases of the project).
  • Receiving organisation: in charge of hosting the activity, developing a programme of activities for participants in cooperation with participants and partner organisations, providing support to participants during all the phases of the project.

Furthermore, the participation in a volunteering activity must be free of charge for volunteers, with the exception of a possible contribution for travel costs (if the Erasmus+ grant does not fully cover these costs) and superfluous expenses not linked to the implementation of the activity. The essential costs for volunteers' participation in the activity are covered by the Erasmus+ grant or through other means afforded by the participating organisations.
