European Solidarity Corps (ESC)
The European Voluntary Service as a brand is discontinued and it is removed from the Erasmus+ programme. As of the end of 2018, the European Solidarity Corps is the main EU programme providing volunteering opportunities for young people. The Corps builds on European Voluntary Service’s success and quality developments.
The European Solidarity Corps is the new European Union initiative which creates opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in projects in their own country or abroad that benefit communities and people around Europe.
Taking part in a European Solidarity Corps project will be a significant achievement for any young person. It will be an asset when applying for a job and it will help you when you apply for higher education. The European Solidarity Corps could be a new opportunity for you to engage in a meaningful activity which could prove to be a stepping stone into employment.
Projects supported by the European Solidarity Corps can last from two to twelve months. They will usually be located within the European Union Member States.
