The European Youth Portal is a platform that helps young people from across Europe to find information on a range of topics as well as opportunities and events.
These can be national or international but should have a European link. The Portal is available in 28 languages and covers 34 countries as well as Europe overall. Make sure to select 'English' as your language and 'United Kingdom' as your country to find all the information relevant for you!

Working: jobs, start a business and work & learn
Learning: school & university, out of school learning and training
Have your say: young people making a difference, want to have your say?, ways to get involved and structured dialogue.
