Eurodesk is a European youth information network created in 1990. As a support organisation to Erasmus+, Eurodesk makes information on learning mobility comprehensive and accessible to young people and those who work with them.
With a network of 38 Eurodesk Centres connected to over 1600 local information providers in 36 European countries, Eurodesk raises awareness on European opportunities and encourages young people to become active citizens.
Eurodesk federates over 1600 local youth information providers, so-called “multipliers and ambassadors” that are regional or local organisations working with young people, delivering youth information and advising young people on mobility opportunities.
To ensure the quality of services in all 36 countries, Eurodesk offers its members quality training and support, and access to youth information services and tools.
It all started in 1990... Get to know the story behind our organisation!
Eurodesk is administered by an Executive Committee (EEC) consisting of at least 5 and at most 7 Executive Committee members, of whom one is the President.
The EEC is the governing body of the network with a mandate to plan the direction which the organisation should take, and the activities and campaigns it should carry out both at European and at national level. The members of the EEC also have a role in building partnerships with other organisations, whenever it is in the benefit of Eurodesk.
Eurodesk Brussels Link (EBL) is the coordinating body of the network and also the managing body of the Eurodesk brand. Its role is to give support in carrying out the mission of Eurodesk in the different countries and facilitate communication about the ongoing projects both internally and to the public. EBL therefore regularly issues publications and initiates and coordinates European level campaigns and activities that are then carried out in the 36 Eurodesk countries.
EBL also provides first-hand European information on youth mobility as well as tools for training, information management, quality assessment and communication to the Eurodesk officers in the various countries.
EBL supports the European Commission in developing and maintaining the European Youth Portal, regularly editing European contents, assessing the quality of Eurodesk national centres and giving them technical support.
There are 38 Eurodesk national coordinating offices in which national coordinators work together to carry out Eurodesk's mission at national level. National coordinators provide support to multipliers to organise their events, as well as channel youth information to them. At national level, the coordinators manage the European Youth Portal, and organise national events and campaigns. National coordinators release publications and communication materials whenever it is appropriate.
Some national coordinators communicate regularly to young people through events, some do not. This depends on the national structure they work in. In any case, national coordinators answer the enquiries received from young people from the same country.
There are over 1100 Eurodesk multipliers in 36 countries all over Europe. Multipliers are local organisations (e.g. youth centres, associations, municipalities) but despite their variety, their core mission remain the same. As one of the most important tasks within the structure, multipliers maintain a face-to-face connection with young people through events and campaigns they organise. Multipliers are the body in the system who make sure that the mobility information collected in the network reaches young people who then through the work of multipliers receive youth information and counselling based on their personal profiles.
is to raise awareness among young people on mobility opportunities and to encourage them to become active citizens.
