Get a taste of mobility projects

In only 3 working days, we show you the possibilities Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps has to offer for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. An international youth project (youth exchange, volunteering,...) might just be the life-changing opportunity for the disadvantaged young people you are working with: e.g. those from minority backgrounds, with special needs, with socio-economic difficulties, discriminated groups, in difficult situations, with limited opportunities...

This Mobility Taster course gives you concrete examples of what is possible, brings you in contact with other inclusion youth organisations, shows you what funding is available specifically for youth inclusion projects and walks you step-by-step through the process in case you would like to give it a try.

Who is the course for?

  • This course is for NEWCOMERS to Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps (e.g. youth worker, social worker,...) who are directly working with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds (e.g. facing social, economic, educational, geographic, cultural, health & disability challenges).
  • If you NEVER organised an international youth project with your target group before and would like to know what is possible, then this course is for you!
  • If you already organised mobility projects for young people, please check the European Training Calendar for a more appropriate youth work training because this Mobility Taster is for NEWCOMERS ;-)
  • This course is NOT for school-related activities such as school exchanges or projects for pupils (please contact the Lifelong Learning colleagues of Erasmus+ for this).

This course welcomes candidates with special needs (e.g. health conditions, disability, single mothers,...) and can fund travel & lodging for personal assistants of selected participants (contact SALTO Inclusion regarding support possibilities).

How to apply

  • Before applying check briefly with the Erasmus+ Youth National Agency in your country if they can send you to the Mobility Taster course (and reimburse your travel).
  • If so, you can apply via the European Training Calendar. Deadline for applications = 1 September 2019 23h59 CET. 
  • Selected participants will get travel, food & lodging in TWIN rooms paid. You might be asked for a small contribution towards the costs (ask your E+ Youth National Agency).

Register for the SALTO Inclusion newsletter or follow the SALTO Inclusion & Diversity Facebook page to be informed of future Mobility Tasters. Or keep an eye on the European Training Calendar.


The Mobility Tasters will be run by 2 international trainers, experienced in inclusion and the Erasmus+ Youth programme, in cooperation with SALTO Inclusion, the National Agencies for the Erasmus+ Youth programme and SALTO Eastern Europe & Caucasus (in the EECA region).
