Who or what are EuroPeers? How can you become a EuroPeer?

Attention former Erasmus+: Youth in Action people!

Have you been taking part  in a Youth in Action project – for instance under the European Voluntary Service or in a youth exchange, and was this such an exciting experience for you that you want to share it with others?  

Do you want to motivate them to experience it too and become an active part of Europe?

If yes, we have a proposal for you! Join the EuroPeers network.

Who or what are EuroPeers?

EuroPeers are young people who have actively participated in the EU's Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme. They visit places where they meet other young people - such as schools, youth clubs, cultural centres and pedestrian zones - to tell their peers about their experiences as young Europeans.

They inform young people about the Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme and other mobility initiatives in Europe. They paint a lively picture of what it means to be European. And they show them how young people in Europe can become involved themselves.

EuroPeers organise their own events. They may also be approached  by institutions to come and hold a talk or presentation. All EuroPeers perform these activities voluntarily.

The European EuroPeer project is based on a common understanding with specific aims:

  • EuroPeers inform and motivate many young people about learning mobility opportunities through the Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme, based on their own experience;
  • EuroPeers increase the visibility and the sustainable dissemination and exploitation of Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme results;
  • EuroPeers increase awareness of European topics related to young people;
  • EuroPeers empower themselves and other young people to become informed, motivated and active citizens in Europe;
  • EuroPeers reach young people with fewer opportunities through a peer-to-peer approach and based on their personal backgrounds.

Through their involvement in Erasmus+: Youth in Action, EuroPeers have gained experience of being European. They show to others that experiencing Europe can be an exciting adventure. By sharing their experience with other young people who may not have had an interest in Europe until now, EuroPeers demonstrate how rewarding active European citizenship can be.

How can you become a EuroPeer?

You can become a EuroPeer if you've taken part in an Erasmus+ : Youth in Action project, for instance as a volunteer in a European Voluntary Service project or in a youth exchange. If you've had experiences you want to share with others. And if you want to motivate others to become an active part of Europe.

If you live in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro or Serbia and are interested to join the network, these are the steps to follow:

  1. On the European training calendar search for Europeers trainings, scheduled in the future. Link to European training calendar: You can also see the list of current and previous trainings, here below under the title "List of training courses for new EuroPeers".
  2. Once you find the desired training, apply to it, by filling in the application form.
  3. If selected, you will be contacted by SALTO SEE and your participation costs will be covered by SALTO SEE.

Note: SALTO SEE stimulates participants who are interested to promote mobilities to local young independently (or in connection to a youth organization in your community), and in return we are providing you with possibility to participate to the training course organized within this initiative.

What's in it for you?

Training courses lasting for several days and organized through the year are offered to people who would like to become EuroPeers. It's a great opportunity to start planning your first own event and to meet young people from different countries - including your own - who want to do the same. There you will learn everything you need to know about how to prepare and organize your own EuroPeer event.

Annual meeting: Once a year few most active EuroPeers gather at a network meeting. Besides training sessions, there’s plenty of time to sit down with other EuroPeers and develop new creative projects for personal promotional projects of E+. 

As a EuroPeer...

  • you can continue being part of a young European generation;
  • you learn how to organise your own events and projects;
  • you're presented with a certificate after your first EuroPeer event;
  • you can join the regional Western Balkan EuroPeers group, get involved in joint projects and communicate with other EuroPeers
  • and you become part of an active EuroPeer network that holds many events all over Europe every year.

EuroPeers is a network that has been existing for several years involving different countries in Europe. We would like to extend this network to the countries of the Western Balkans.

What do we expect from you?

EuroPeers in Western Balkans is initiated by SALTO SEE, but please note that your promotional activities among local peers are entirely up to you. You can decide freely which target groups you want to address, which type of events you will organize, who will you ask for support etc. You can also decide if you want to organize these events on your own or in collaboration with other stakeholders (e.g. local EVS sending organizations, youth centres, secondary schools, universities, our local Contact points for YIA: Erasmus+).
As SALTO SEE is based in Ljubljana, Slovenia and not in every country of the SEE we can support you with the initial training, but later on our support is more or less limited to email communication.
