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. 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.
