The European Citizenship Trimester Programme (ECTP) was born in 2009 as an intra-European trimester secondary-school exchange focusing on European and Active Citizenship. ECTP is run by the European Federation for Intercultural Learning – EFIL-, namely the Federation of AFS organisations in Europe. The 3 month exchange takes place between August and November with a joint ECTP Brussels Camp at the end November/beginning of December, before the students are going home to their countries. ECTP now counts 25 partners in Europe and about 240 participants. Participants are between 15 and 18 years old.
