EU programmes

Detailed information on participation in the EU programs is not available as participation in these programs often takes place in the framework of cooperation among individual organizations and there is no monitoring of participation of youth in these programs. In general, EU programmes (they may involve volunteering or not) are administered by the Agency of International Youth Cooperation. It is a public non-profit institution established in February 1999 by The State Council for Youth Affairs (currently Department of Youth Affairs under the Ministry of Social Security and Labour) and Lithuanian Youth Council (LiJOT). The main aim of the agency is to ensure the development of international youth cooperation and successful participation of Lithuanian youth in European Union programmes for young people. The agency provides information and organizes the participation of youth in the EU volunteering programmes (i.e. European Voluntary Service). 

Other Programmes

Detailed information on participation in other programmes is not available as participation in other programmes often takes place in the framework of cooperation among individual organizations. 

Legal framework applying to foreign volunteers

There are no special legal requirements, bilateral international agreements or special visa regulations to foreign volunteers. Visa policy and residence permits and other potential conditions that young volunteers will be subjected to will depend on their country of origin. Detailed information can be found on Migration Department under the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Lithuania website.
