EURODESK - European information for young people

EURODESK offers young people and people working with youth an access to European information, through a network of national coordinators connected to over 900 local information providers and partners in 33 European countries.

Over the past 20 years, EURODESK has grown from a single information project at regional level in Scotland to a Europe-wide network, recognized as a permanent support structure of the EU’s Youth in Action programme.

EURODESK gets information requests such as:
  • “I am seeking a grant for an internship in France".
  • “We are looking for contacts to high schools in the UK".
  • “Urgent: Partner for a youth exchange project in Slovakia needed!”
The topics range from volunteering to working and studying abroad, from how to find European contacts for a youth project to how to getting financial support for it.
EURODESK offers information through different channels and at different levels, from face-to-face information provision given at local youth information centres to highly developed information tools online. EURODESK national and regional information providers and co-operation partners provide among others the following services:
  • Free advice service on European questions
  • Fast access to European information online, including Social Media
  • Specially developed information tools and support for professionals providing European information to young people
  • Training courses for all those who are working with young people
  • Regular publications featuring European information for young people
  • Promotion of European information.
EURODESK also maintains the contents of the European Youth Portal on behalf of the European Commission. You can find more information on EURODESK at
