Youth

Youth is a national policy area. Harmonisation of Member States’ legislation is excluded. The role of the EU is therefore a supporting one. As such, the youth strand of the Erasmus+ programme encourages exchanges of young people within the EU and with third countries. Over the past few years, the European Union has strengthened its policies towards young people, as illustrated by the European Solidarity Corps initiative and the DiscoverEU project.
