European Solidarity Corps
The European Union offers more programmes than just the Erasmus+ programme. One very interesting one for young people is European Solidarity Corps.
Are you between 18 and 30 and looking for an opportunity to help the wider community, in Europe and beyond? Do you feel like gaining extra experience abroad after graduation or as a gap-year? European Solidarity Corps (sister programme of Erasmus+) offers many opportunities.
This programme fully funds volunteers for a period of 2 weeks - 12 months during a volunteering project or traineeship abroad. Furthermore, there are options to start your own local part-time solidarity project in your own region.
These projects are an excellent opportunity to help where needed, learn new skills, spend time abroad, maybe learn a language – and definitely come back with unforgettable memories.
With the wide range of issues covered by the projects (such as environment, health, inclusion, digital technologies, culture, sport) it is definitely worth taking a look at this webpage.
