Youth exchanges allow groups of young people from different countries to meet, live together and work on shared projects for short periods.



Youth exchanges are open to people between the ages of 13 and 30.

To be a group leader in a youth exchange, you must be at least 18 years-old.

Youth exchanges are managed by youth organisations, informal groups of young people or other organisations.



Youth exchanges last between 5 and 21 days. This excludes traveling time.


Financial Support

The EU grant supports travel as well as practical and activity-related costs necessary for the exchange.


How to apply

To participate in a youth exchange, you cannot apply directly for a grant as an individual. Applications must be made by an organisation or a group of young people who in turn select who will participate in the exchange.

If you have an EU Login account, use the eForms button to access the Erasmus+ Applications.

If you do not have and EU Login use the Create EU Login account button below.

Please note completed applications should be submitted to the National Agencies in the Programme Country where the applicant organisation is established.

The European Youth Portal also provides information and opportunities for young people.
