YOUTH AMBASSADORS

3 youth ambassadors 2.jpg

As ERYICA is a network that is ‘all about youth’, it is very important to include young people’s perspective in the development of all products and services that target youth. Therefore, since 2012, ERYICA has been training young people to become Youth Ambassadors for youth information. So far, this has been taking place bi-annually, with trainings taking place in Malta (2012), Sweden (2014), Ljubljana (2016), and Alicante (2018). The Youth Ambassadors are aged between 18-22, and come from all over Europe.

Once trained, Youth Ambassadors can participate in professional development processes in order to ensure that the outcomes of ERYICA’s work meet the needs of young people, and also in events, such as the EU Youth Conference.
