    All participants receive Youthpass certificates. Youthpass is a part of the European Commission’s strategy to foster the recognition of non-formal learning. It is available for projects funded by Erasmus+ (2020-2027). As a tool to document and recognise learning outcomes, it puts policy into practice and practice into policy:
    *While creating their Youthpass Certificate together with a support person, the participants of the projects have the possibility to describe what they have done in their project and which competences they have acquired. Thus, Youthpass supports the reflection upon the personal non-formal learning process and outcomes.
    *Being a Europe-wide validation instrument for non-formal learning in the youth field, Youthpass contributes to strengthening the social recognition of youth work.
    *Describing the added value of the project, Youthpass supports active European citizenship of young people and of youth workers.
