SALTO-YOUTH is a network of eight Resource Centres working on European priority areas within the youth field.

As part of the European Commission's Training Strategy, SALTO-YOUTH provides non-formal learning resources for youth workers and youth leaders and organises training and contact-making activities to support organisations and National Agencies within the frame of the European Commission's Erasmus+ :Youth in Action programme and beyond.

In addition to their specific priorities, the SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres have a number of joint tasks such as developing training resources, sending regular newsletters about European YOUTH priorities, providing a European Training Calendar, making experienced European youth trainers accessible and evaluating the training activities.
