What is job shadowing?

Job Shadowing is a project under the action 4.3 of the Youth in Action Programme that allows youth workers to stay in an organisation in an other country for a short period in order to learn something (observation in working environment).

How long can it be?

A job shadowing experience can take place in an European country and it can last from 7 to 23 days.

Who can participate?

All people, without age limit, youth workers or people who are working in the youth field.

Views International in partnership with other organisations has already implemented some Job shadowing projects.

Previous job shadowing projects


The Mobility officers of Views International spend ten days in the UK at Norfolk Institute in order to improve their techniques. This project took place thanks to the partnership with Views Belgium and the UK Organisation


Eva from Las Ninas del Tul Granada Spain came to Belgium for two weeks to see how Views International hosts EVS and what adaptations are needed. Views Belgium was our partner in this project.


At our General Assembly in 2009 more people asked to come to see how is the daily work in the office of Views International and Views Belgium. In February 2010 Vanessa and Giulia from Italy and Hania from Poland realised the project through their participation.

In September 2011 Magda and Ola from Poland and Florentin and Carmen from Romania continued the experience.
