What about Youthpass in the new Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes in 2021-2027?

Youthpass is part of the recently launched Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme. Also the proposed legal basis for the European Solidarity Corps 2021-2027 refers to Youthpass among the Union tools to foster the recognition of competences and skills.

Youthpass will remain available for the participants of the youth field activities within Erasmus+ and all actions of the European Solidarity Corps; to confirm their participation and more importantly, to offer the possibility to describe the learning process and the developed learning outcomes when taking part in these programmes.

SALTO Training & Cooperation Resource Centre, together with the European Commission and other stakeholders, is finalising the Youthpass Strategy for the quality implementation of Youthpass, for setting its development directions and for contributing to better recognition of non-formal and informal learning in youth work and solidarity activities. The strategy is expected to be published before summer 2021.
