Glossary Erasmusplus

Accompanying person A person who accompanies participants (learners, staff, young people or youth workers) in a mobility activity in order to ensure their safety, provide support and assistance, as well as assist with the participant’s effective learning during the mobility experience. In individual activities, an accompanying person may accompany participants with fewer opportunities or minors and youngsters with little experience outside their own country. In case of group activities in the field of education and training, qualified education staff must accompany the group to facilitate the learning process.
Group leader

In youth mobility projects, a group leader is an adult of at least 18 years old who joins the young people participating in a Youth Exchange or DiscoverEU Inclusion Action in order to ensure their effective learning (Youthpass), protection and safety.


Informal group of young people Group of at least four young people which does not have legal personality under the applicable national law, provided that their representatives have the legal capacity to undertake legal obligations on their behalf. These groups of young people can be applicants and partners in some Actions of Erasmus+. For the purpose of simplification, they are assimilated to legal persons (organisations, institutions, etc.) in this Guide and fit within the notion of Erasmus+ participating organisations for the Key Action 1 actions in which they can take part. The group must be composed of at least four young persons and their age should be according with the overall age of the young people in the programme (13-30). In exceptional cases and if all young people are minors, the group could be represented by an adult. This would allow a group of young people (where all are minors) with a help of a youth worker/coach to submit an application.
Receiving organization A participating organisation receiving participants and organising activities of an Erasmus+ project.
Sending organization A participating organisation sending one or more participants to an activity of an Erasmus+ project.

Language skills

Adequate language skills in English (Minimum B1) are essential for partaking in IYM Dachau in order to fluently communicate with each other. Attention! – the whole program takes place in English!

A keen interest in IYM's content

The content of the workshops and the examination of historic aspects are central components of IYM Dachau. Therefore it is mandatory that all participants take a keen interest in the topic of National Socialism and make a contribution to IYM by actively taking part.

I am interested in the topics of IYM Dachau, but don't know much about the history of National Socialism. Can I still take part?

Previous knowledge is not necessarily required, but we do encourage you to read up a little on the subject. That way you’ll be able to take more in and quickly take part in discussions.

What do I have to be aware of if I'm under 18?

Participants under 18 are under the supervision of the team of IYM Dachau. They also have to abide to German Youth law. In order for you to take part we need your legal guardian’s signature. You can download the form here. Please print it out, have it completed and signed by your parents. After you have scanned it in PDF format, please upload it during the online application.

How can I withdraw my registration?

You have to notify the IJB office by post that you want to declare your withdrawal. Conditions on refunds of your participation fee are stated on your application form.

I can't get hold of anyone at the IJB office!

Unfortunately the IJB office is neither occupied all day long nor every day of the week. Try again! The most promising way to get hold of us is by sending us an e-mail.
