What We Do


EFDN Youth & Staff exchanges allow EFDN members to provide groups of young people from different countries to meet, live together and work on shared projects for short periods.  The Youth & Staff exchanges take place outside their conventional environment.  On an EFDN exchange programme, the participants can expect to be involved in activities such as workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, outdoor activities and more, while working towards shared themes of objectives.

Staff exchanges are uniquely designed to develop and challenge the everyday responsibilities of community programmes. The staff exchange programme provides a platform for staff to learn, share and develop new ideas to enable them to be at the forefront of delivering innovative programmes within their regions.

Through the exchange programmes, in partnership with the National Erasmus Agencies, the Participants’ learning experiences are recognised through a Youth Pass qualification.
