About Academy

Erasmus+ Youth Academy was founded in 2021 by two NGOs - Synergy Bulgaria and Life Zone Group as a digital space for quality networking and experience sharing in the field of European funding opportunities and NGO management.

Today we offer both online & offline opportunities. We deliver Project Writing Challenges and provide support in a digital space - Facebook community with over 2100 members from all over Europe.

Twice a year we host offline events co-funded by Erasmus+:
Partnership-Building Activities, Ideathons and professional trainings.
All - with the vision to transform youth non-profit sector in Europe.

European Programs we work with:

This European Union program aims to support projects in the fields of education, vocational training, youth and sports.
In 2021 - 2027 the budget for Erasmus + projects is 26 billion Euro, and the program itself is becoming even more inclusive and international.

The topics of digital transformation and sustainable development, equality and inclusion, active participation and stable employment, mental and physical health are becoming priorities.

What does this mean? Now is the perfect time to explore the world of Erasmus +. And for those who are actively using the capabilities of the program already - to develop skills and reach new levels.
