It is a program for young people aged between 18 and 30, resident in the country of their sending organization. More specifically, it addresses young people with fewer opportunities, that is, with disadvantaged backgrounds and fewer opportunities compared to their peers whenever disadvantage limits or prevents participation in transnational activities for reasons such as:

- health problems: people with chronic health problems, severe illnesses or psychiatric conditions;
- social obstacles: people facing discrimination because of gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc.;
- people with limited social skills or anti-social or risky behaviors; people in a precarious situation;
