The main European youth information and mobility networks, ERYICA, EYCA and Eurodesk, have developed this booklet where you will find almost 30 good practices all around Europe, from Finland to Cyprus, from Portugal to Turkey and Lithuania. It includes four categories: studying and employment, mobility and integration, digital tools and peer-to-peer and face-to-face. The purpose of this publication is to showcase models of good practice on how to actively reach out to young people, inspire youth (information) workers in their daily effort to increase quality of youth work services and serve as a tool for policy-makers to advance youth work & youth mobility at all levels.
