Introduction to the Erasmus+ Programme

Qu'est ce que le programme Erasmus + de la Commission Européenne ?

The SVI takes part in the Erasmus+ Programme, and more precisely in the Youth part, to allow more young people to go live an international volunteering experience by reducing financial obstacles. The SVI wants to reaffirm its commitment.

The SVI takes part in different programmes, including the European Voluntary Service, youth exchanges and workers exchanges.

Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sports for the period of 2014-2020 (it used to be called Erasmus). The programme aims to give young people of less than 30 years old, with our without a degree, student or not, the opportunity to go live abroad to build their skills, to increase employability and to live an international volunteering experience.

Volunteering is a civic and formative act and should be available to all.

It also helps associations to work in partnerships and to share innovative practices in the fields of education, training and youth.
