Support Measures

Cooperation and partnerships, training measures and youth information are the key terms for the development of activities under Action 5 of the YOUTH program.

In order to have appropriate tools for achieving the above objectives, nine types of activity have been identified, offering opportunities to applicants to develop new YOUTH projects, improve their skills in non-formal education and inform others about the YOUTH program.

All Support Measures must be directly linked to the Actions and/or objectives of the YOUTH program.
All Support Measures must be non-profit-making.
The table in section G.6 gives details of the activities and criteria (duration, partners and participants).

The nine types of activity eligible for support are as follows:

1. Practical training experience (job shadowing)
This activity allows youth workers to acquire the skills for organizing a transnational project by working in a partner organization for a limited period of time.
2. Feasibility visits
These allow project managers to discuss a project idea before submitting an application under Actions 1 or 2.
3. Contact-making seminars
These bring together potential partners for YOUTH projects.

4. Study visits
These provide an opportunity to learn about youth work provisions in other countries.
5. Seminars
