In 1993, ERYICA adopted the European Youth Information Charter which has since become a text of reference throughout Europe as a set of professional principles and guidelines for youth information and counselling work. A revised version of the core document has been approved, incorporating the Principles for Online Youth Information.

A Europe-wide survey has revealed that while young people value youth information on international opportunities, they can also find it difficult to access.
