Ecorys has successfully finalized the interim evaluation of the EC Youth in Action Programme. The Programme targets young people, youth organisations and youth workers. It aims at building capacities through non-formal education.

For this evaluation, Ecorys has interviewed relevant youth organisations and national institutions and conducted questionnaires among participating and non-participating youngsters.

The evaluation shows that the Youth in Action Programme is reaching its objectives; youngsters acquire skills through non-formal education. Nevertheless, there is still room for improvement, especially in relation to the rational of the Programme.
