EFIL runs since 2009 the European Citizenship Trimester Programme (ECTP), an host-family and school-based exchange programme which provides an immersion in another culture for 3 months focusing on intercultural learning with an additional strong focus on active European citizenship. At the end of the exchange experience, just before coming back to their home country, all participants meet at the ECTP Camp in Brussels to share their experience, attend workshops and visit the EU institutions.

This video and the website have been developed in the framework of EFIL's objective to provide tools for the improvement of the implementation of the European citizenship content in intercultural exchanges, and thanks to a training with volunteers supported by the Youth in Action Programme of the European Commission.
Following this objective, also the new ECTP Manual has been drafted and released. If you are interested in accessing it, contact the Programme director in your AFS organisation
