There are no specific tools for recognising / validating the competencies acquired by young people participating in youth work activities. The only recognition tool promoted by the national authorities is the Certificate of Competences Acquired trough Volunteering. However, this tool had not been specifically developed for young people but for volunteers of all ages. 

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