European Youth Foundation Pilot Activity Grant
Friday, 1 Sep 2023
12:00am – 12:00am
Closing Dates during 2023: 1st February, June & September
The aim of pilot activity grants is to support actions which address young people’s needs or challenges at a local level. The actions have a clear link to the local context and address the focus themes for pilot activities, as set out by the Joint Council on Youth.
These activities should be based on innovation or on replication of good practice, have a clear youth work dimension and be based on non-formal education principles. The link between the action and the envisioned impact on the community should be clearly thought out.
The pilot activity can be :
- An awareness raising activity: participants are informed or educated about a topic or an issue, with the intention of influencing their attitudes, behaviours, solutions or responses in their local context. At the end of the activity they can say “I have learned this” or “I am aware of that”.
- A Skills development activity: participants develop skills to address identified needs. At the end of the activity they can say: “I can do this” or “I have the ability to do that”.
- Collaborative work: participants’ skills and knowledge serve as a basis to build and develop an outcome (for example a campaign, guidelines, recommendations etc.) and at the end they can say “I have contributed to the development of this or that”.
The maximum duration of a pilot activity project is 6 months.
