What is a youth exchange?

A Youth Exchange is an activity funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ scheme. It offers the chance for young people to travel, gain skills, and meet others from around the world in a 5-21 day activity with all costs, including travel, covered.

YTS runs youth exchanges in ecovillages and sustainable projects to help young people get closer to nature, sustainable living, and themselves. We’ve run activities on leadership, permaculture, organic farming, rural youth, and much more. You can see examples and reports from past exchanges in our archive (link).
Youth exchanges are open to people aged 18-30 from eligible partner countries – each exchange is organised between associations in different countries, which can send a specific number of people. The youth exchanges have topics and the young people are supposed to engage not only in the idea of traveling abroad but also be interested in sustainable living and the topic itself. We want you to be empowered in the best way possible.
You might need to fill out a questionnaire or send some details about your personal background to participate and be selected for a youth exchange.

You are involved with organisations that excel in non-formal education and sustainable living? Then maybe we have something to expand your experience!

What we offer

To support inspired young people we offer trainings (called mobility for youth workers) about sustainable youth exchanges or youth leaders for sustainability which are also funded by the ERASMUS+ programme. They will help you develop your own projects and share your experience with more youth. As venues we chose as well ecovillages, communities and sustainable projects which align with our vision.

In contrast to youth exchanges, trainings are without an age limit. Come join us!

As a network Yes to Sustainability is interested to find new venues and partners around Europe and the partner countries of the ERASMUS+ programme. Are you interested to be a part of our worldwide family?
