Young? You are between 18 and 30 years old…
Motivated? You want to do something good and meaningful in a voluntary project…
Curious? You want to go abroad to make new experiences and get to know a new culture and new people…
Then the European Solidarity Corps might be your opportunity!
Funded by the European Union, the European Solidarity Corps (ESC) allows youths from whole Europe to make international volunteering experience, regardless of their social background, financial possibilities or their level of education. The only important requirement is to be open-minded and to support democratic values like civil rights, equality, pluralism, tolerance and solidarity.
Therefore ESC projects mostly take place in another country as your home country and embrace topics like social inclusion, environmental protection, democratic participation and many others. This is an amazing chance to learn new skills, to meet new friends and to gain new insight to European cultures.
Everyone who is interested can easily registrate on the ESC-website (https://europa.eu/youth/solidarity_en). After creating a profile you can look for projects on your own, but also allow associations to contact you and send you project offers.
Since all ESC-projects are certified and financed by the EU, a high quality and same possibilities for all are guaranteed. And don’t be anxious about going to another country without knowing the language. You will receive language training and support, so that you will be comfortable soon.
If you are interested but not quite sure or have any special doubts or questions, we are here to support you!
