SALTO-YOUTH stands for Support, Advanced Learning and Training Opportunities for Youth. It works within the Erasmus+ Youth and the European Solidarity Corps programmes. 


SALTO-YOUTH is a network of seven 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 (NAs) within the frame of the European Commission's Erasmus+ Youth programme, the European Solidarity Corps, and beyond.

On this website you'll find lots of tools:

  • European Training Calendar is where you'll find trainings and seminars run by SALTO, European Solidarity Corps Resource Centre, Erasmus+ NAs and NGOs in the youth field
  • Toolbox for Training contains hundreds of tools and activity ideas for youth work
  • Otlas Partner Finding puts you in touch with thousands of youth projects, so you can build strong partnerships and apply for Erasmus+
  • Trainers Online for Youth is our directory of over 500 trainers, who can deliver your international training activities

The seven resource centres each focus on a specific topic or region. They are all based at a different Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps National Agency. The resource centres are:

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.
