What is Youthpass?

Youthpass is a European recognition instrument for identifying and documenting learning outcomes that are acquired in projects under the Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps programmes.

  • Youthpass promotes individual reflection and awareness about learning and helps to make learning outcomes visible for the learners themselves as well as for others.
  • It aims to reinforce reflective practices in youth work and solidarity activities, thereby enhancing their quality and recognition.
  • It also supports the continued pathways of young people and youth workers, and...
  • raises visibility of the value of European engagement.

Who can use Youthpass?

Youthpass certificates are available for all types of projects and activities within the Erasmus+: Youth in Action and European Solidarity Corps programmes.

The certificates can also be issued for projects that were granted under the previous Youth in Action programme (2007-2013).

All participants of the projects approved within these frameworks are entitled to receive a Youthpass certificate, and thus recognition for their non-formal learning outcomes.

The responsibility to issue the Youthpass certificates to the participants/volunteers, in case they wish to receive them, lies with the organisation that signs the contract for the Erasmus+ grant.
