2022, a milestone for Interreg Volunteer Youth
Launched in 2017, Interreg Volunteer Youth (IVY) has successfully given the opportunity to 790 young people to get involved and contribute to European Territorial Cooperation either within Interreg Programmes or Interreg Projects.
To celebrate its fifth anniversary, we have reached out to previous IVY volunteers, mentors and host organisations to share with us their experience and the impact that Interreg Volunteer Youth had on them and in their regions.
Through the eyes of those who already took part, together we aspire to broaden our reach.
Valentina, Khouloud, Alina and Jules have shared with us their view on what European Territorial Cooperation mean for them after being an IVY volunteer.
Interreg Volunteer Youth not only enriches the lives of those who volunteer, it has also a direct impact on the region in which the volunteers are being deployed. We have asked the local actors of cooperation what is their view on young people’s participation and contributions.
As we celebrate our fifth anniversary, 2022 has also been the European Year of Youth, bringing the focus on young people and their potential.
Those at the heart of the initiative have taken a moment to reflect on our common accomplishments and look towards our future.
