Capacity building in the field of youth

European Call for Proposals

Capacity building in the field of youth

The Call for Proposals - EAC/S11/13 “Capacity building in the field of youth” (Key Action 2) has been published by the European Commission, Directorate Education and Training.

 

Under the framework of Key Action 2, the purpose of the current “Capacity building in the field of youth” call is to bring positive and long-lasting effects on the participating organisations, on the policy systems in which such Actions are framed as well as on the persons directly or indirectly involved in the organised activities.

 

The “Capacity building in the field of youth” call aims to:

- foster cooperation and exchanges in the field of youth between Programme Countries and Partner Countries from different regions115 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, notably targeting young people with fewer opportunities, with a view to improving participants' level of competences and fostering their active participation in society.

 

Based on the geographical coverage, we distinguish two types of Capacity Building projects:

- Capacity Building projects between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme Countries and in the Partner Countries from Regions 5-13 (Other Partner Countries, neither EU member states nor neighbouring the EU). 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, in so far as they bring added value in the realisation of the project's objectives.

- Capacity Building projects between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme Countries and in the Partner Countries from Region 1 (Western Balkans Youth Window projects). These projects, submitted by organisations from Western Balkans countries, aim at increasing the capacity of organisations through the implementation of mobility activities, possibly complemented by capacity building activities. They are funded with additional EU funds allocated to the Erasmus+ Programme to increase cooperation with organisations from Western Balkans and refered to as Western Balkans Youth Window projects.

 

Under the current “Capacity building in the field of youth” call, funded 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 total budget earmarked for the co-financing of the action is estimated at EUR 171 700 000 maximum (EUR 150 000 each project). The financial contribution from the Commission cannot exceed 80% of the total eligible costs. Projects under the current “Capacity building in the field of youth” call can last from 9 months to 2 years. The duration has to be chosen at application stage, based on the objective of the project and on the type of activities foreseen over time.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current “Capacity building in the field of youth” call for proposals is 3 April 2015.
