European Peer Training Organisation - EPTO

EPTO provides a space where young people can be learners and educators, sharing with their peers their competencies in a spirit of collaboration.
In EPTO, individual knowledge becomes collective knowledge.

Peers for Diversity - Call for participants

Peers for Diversity is a new European project funded by Erasmus+ and coordinated by our member organisation Ofensiva Tinerilor. It aims to train youth workers and youth mentors to use different peer education tools to fight cultural discrimination and to be able to raise awareness in their own communities through local workshops on this topic.

EPTO is looking for 2 Belgium-based participants for this project.

Youth Info future toolbox

For the next two years, EPTO will be involved in a transnational project called « YouthInfo: Future Youth Information Toolbox » organised in partnership with ERYICA (European Youth Information and Councelling Agency) and with the 7 following partners :

Creativitas, Lithuania ; Åbo Akademi University, Finland ; Youth Work Ireland, Ireland ; Jugend- und Familienstiftung des Landes Berlin, Germany ; Bundesnetzwerk Österreichische Jugendinfos, Austria ; Labdaros ir Paramos Fondas "Jauniems", Lithuania ; National Youth Council of Latvia, Latvia.

Concerning Peace and Social Inclusion in Europe, are you ready to be part of the solution?

For the last year and a half, EPTO has been developing a partnership with the PeaceJam Foundation to expand a PeaceJam award-winning peace education programme in Europe. The Peacejam Foundatæion mobilises Nobel Peace Prize Laureates to lead life-changing inspiration & peer mentoring events linking them to young people from many different backgrounds. The programme engenders mutual respect, intercultural dialogue and inclusion for all. To meet Europe’s challenges of extremism, division, radicalisation & exclusion, we need to change the context for young people, teachers, schools and the communities they co-create.

Peers for Peace: second mobility in Macedonia
