You can find above the general conditions concerning youth exchange and the mobility of youth workers. In addition to these, each projects has its own requirements.These conditions are shared with the application form when the project call is made. You can find the most suitable project for you by examining the conditions in the call.
Also, you do not have to be a good English speaker to participate in youth exchanges. The aim of this program is mainly to engage youths with different cultures and learn from each other.
Contrary to what you might think, this program is also aimed at improving English language skills for young people who are not good at English and who cannot speak and practice with foreigners.
In addition, to be able to participate in the program of mobility of youth workers you need to have a good English proficiency. Understanding the information provided during this training course is important both for your own development and for the development of the institutions you work with. So you have to be good at your level of English, as it is important to have full participation and mastery of the topic throughout the project.
You do not need to pay any fees to benefit from the program. All expenses such as transportation, accommodation, food & beverage, and visa-costs are covered by the European Union in the Erasmus + projects.
When you are accepted for a project, the project has certain amounts reserved for transportation costs for each country participant. For example, you are accepted for a project in Spain. Spain has allocated an amount of 360 Euros for transportation costs to those participating from Turkey. All transportation means (excluding taxi) will be calculated based on this amount.
Generally, participants pay their transportation costs before the project by themselves. The fees paid are either returned during the project or within 1-2 months after the project.
Your visa costs are covered before the project, too. During the project, food and beverage and accommodation expenses are covered.
For every project, the countries you go to are allowed to stay for 1-2 days outside the project days. However, on those days your costs are not covered by the project budget. You have to pay for it by yourself.
