“Library for all”  is a project financed by Youth in Action. Let’s see what YiA is all about.

“Youth in Action is the EU Program for young people aged 15-28 (in some cases 13-30). It aims to inspire a sense of active citizenship, solidarity and tolerance among young Europeans and to involve them in shaping the Union’s future.

Youth in Action is a programme for all! It promotes mobility within and beyond the EU borders, non-formal learning and intercultural dialogue, and encourages the inclusion of all young people, regardless of their educational, social and cultural background.

Youth in Action is the successor of the YOUTH Program (2000-2006). Building on the experience of the previous programs for youth, Youth in Action is the result of a large consultation with the different stakeholders in the youth field and aims to respond to the evolution and needs of young people at European level.

With a total budget of 885 million euros for seven years (2007-2013), the Program supports a large variety of activities for young people and youth workers through five Actions .

There are two main ways to get involved in the Program:

1. You are 

… a young person aged between 13-30 or a youth worker…

… full of energy, creativity and ideas and would like to find a way to develop them…

… looking for opportunities to meet and exchange ideas and practices with other young people or youth workers from different countries…

… interested in volunteering in another country…

As an individual you can be a participant in one of the activities supported by the Program.
