Frequently asked questions

Airbag+ consortium of partners counts with 4 NGOs that deal with Youth from their very foundation. Being also sending and hosting organizations of Youth Exchanges, Training Courses and Volunteering projects, made them truly experienced about the Erasmus+ programme, its actions and target groups. As partners in some of those above mentioned short and long term mobilities, they decided to fight their shared Youth workers’ frustration in front of certain problems involving their young participants and got the idea of jointly creating an APP that could collect the most diverse issues and solutions to those.

Of course! Even if the APP has been thought for Youth workers, organizers of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps mobilities and their participants, anyone who is interested in knowing more about the solutions to problems that may happen during a Youth Exchange, Taring Course or a Volunteering experience will be able to easily read and interpret the information collected from the project partners.

AIRBAG+ will be free from both Android and IOS. You’ll just need to download it!
