In the last years, the Erasmus Student Network has been expanding its connections with student and youth organisations from Europe and beyond, seeing a growing interest in the learning mobility opportunities for young people. The associate membership scheme responds to this need, aiming at helping the work of organisations that believe learning mobility opportunities can make a positive impact on society.

Potential Applicants

The associate membership scheme aims to bring together all kinds of youth and student organisations from all over the world that have an interest in the field of learning mobility. The scheme is open to any student or youth organisation that shares ESN's values and is committed to the improvement of intercultural understanding and exchange opportunities.

Through the scheme, associate members would be able to benefit from ESN's expertise, events, initiatives, and services. The associate membership will provide opportunities for capacity building in the field of learning mobility, identifying areas in which the associated members can work together with ESN and between themselves to overcome barriers to mobility and support mobile learners around the world.
