What We Do
We encourage and motivate young people to take part in international projects, by telling our own stories about living in other countries and why this is such a great thing to do.
What do EuroPeers do?
- We organise presentations and workshops for schools, colleges and youth groups
- We attend education fairs and other events
- We give friendly personal mobility counselling to young people before and during their international activity, and we invite them to join us afterwards
- We work with other organisations and groups, and help them to promote their activities and get information out to young people
- We promote Erasmus Plus and European Solidarity Corps in the UK*
Erasmus Plus is the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. It funds all sorts of international education, training and work experience activities. It is open to young people from every kind of background – not just university students. Erasmus Plus has a strong social purpose to encourage equal opportunity, diversity, social mobility, employment and growth.
European Solidarity Corps is an initiative designed to bring about change to communities on a national and international level. The programme encourages young people aged 18-30 to explore the theme of solidarity by offering volunteering opportunities, jobs and traineeships as well as solidarity projects, tackling issues in local communities.
EuroPeers get training, advice and resources to support their activities – and an international network of professional connections.
Our most active EuroPeers are invited to join our Executive Team which manages and supports the network. They also get the chance to represent us at national or international meetings, to join European projects or to initiate their own projects in our name.
Active participation in EuroPeers UK is a great experience to add to your CV.
If you’d like to know how you can personally get involved, we can help you! Explore the Our Stories page to learn about young people’s experiences with these international programmes.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 is still making the implementation of projects difficult. In line with the constantly changing advice with regard to travel, for projects advertised in our newsletter we are asking initially for registration of interest. No placement will start until it is safe to do so and the start date may be subject to change.
*Please note that the projects funded by the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes 2014-2020 will continue as planned under the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated with the EU. More information can be found at www.erasmusplus.org.uk
