LYS International

International youth work and education is a key feature of Limerick Youth Service with many former participants saying it was one of the ‘highlights of their time with LYS’ and ‘ignited the travel bug.’

Supported by the Erasmus+ international youth work and/or youth exchange is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport across Europe.  For decades it has provided opportunities for Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad.

Throughout the year LYS has taken part in a number of youth exchanges with nations with countries including Italy, Malta, Finland and even South Africa!
