Existing arrangements

There are no specific tools for recognition / validation / accreditation of competences acquired by young people participating in youth work activities. The only recognition tool promoted by the national authorities is the so-called Certificate of competences acquired during volunteering (Potvrda o kompetencijama stečenim kroz volontiranje). However, the tool had not been developed specifically for young people but for volunteers of all ages.

Young people participating in international activities within the Erasmus+ programme are encouraged to use YouthPass - Recognition tool for non-formal & informal learning in youth projects.
