In order to disseminate its opportunities for youth NGOs, the EYF organises, in co-operation with member states, training events for youth organisations at national and local level. These events include sessions about the EYF, its grants and working methods, as well as sessions on youth policy and project management. These events have been organised as of 2018, following a series of five thematic seminars organised at the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg. The in-country training activities allow for closer co-operation with youth structures and young people from each member state. 

The EYF presentation/training in the member states has the following objectives:

  • Reach out directly to young people and youth organisations in a Council of Europe member state;
  • Disseminate the opportunities offered by the EYF and its specificities;
  • Learn about the reality and context of youth NGOs in the host country;
  • Support the youth authorities in the host country in their work with youth NGOs.

The initiative to organise such training events comes from member states and the EYF is available to implement a limited number per year.
