Intercontinental youth work cooperation

The National Agency for European Programs and Mobility promotes intercontinental youth work cooperation with the administration of the Erasmus+ Program actions like European Volunteer Service that provides opportunities for young people and youth workers to experience learning processes in intercontinental dimension. The Erasmus plus program is funded by the EU and provides opportunities for young people and youth workers. The Republic of North Macedonia is a Program Country within Erasmus plus, and has equal status as other EU countries as a beneficiary.

US Peace Corps provides opportunities for US citizens that contribute towards intercontinental youth work cooperation. 

This programme supports the volunteers in North Macedonia who work with their communities on locally prioritized projects in the Education and Community Economic Development sectors. During their service in North Macedonia, Volunteers learn to speak local languages, including Albanian and Macedonian. 

US Peace Corps Mission is still active in North Macedonia and provides services and opportunities for motivated change makers to immerse themselves in a community abroad, working side by side with local leaders to tackle the most pressing challenges of our generation which focus is youth. Main objectives of the program are:

  • To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.
  • To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the people served.
  • To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.

The program is funded by the US government.
