I AM INTERESTED IN THE EUROPEAN SOLIDARITY CORPS
If you want to live an inspiring and rewarding experience, and have the chance to bring change while developing your skills and competences, you can do so with the funding and support of the European Solidarity Corps (ESC)! This program helps young people participate in projects that benefit communities, whether abroad or in their own country.
The European Solidarity Corps brings together young people to build a more inclusive society, supporting vulnerable people and responding to societal and humanitarian challenges. It offers an inspiring and stimulating experience for young people who wish to help, learn and develop and provides a single entry point for such solidarity activities across the Union and beyond.
Following the success of the European Voluntary Service program since 2019, the EU has set up the European Solidarity Corps program – the main EU program – to provide volunteering opportunities in the new general EU program for volunteering opportunities.
In order to achieve its objectives, ESC implements four actions, structured in two parts: For more information, click on the links below.
Part 1: Participation of young people in solidarity activities:
1) Volunteering projects : Volunteering projects offer young people the opportunity to participate in solidarity activities and help meet identified needs within local communities and help overcome important societal challenges on the ground. Volunteering can take place in a country other than the participant’s country of residence or in the participant’s country of residence. Projects can cover a variety of topics, such as environmental protection, climate change mitigation or even greater social inclusion.
2) Volunteering teams in high priority areas : These projects are large-scale, high-impact projects supporting voluntary activities carried out by young people from at least two different countries who come together to express their solidarity by implementing interventions in short term that respond to common European challenges.
3) Solidarity projects : A solidarity project is a non-profit solidarity activity initiated, developed and implemented by at least 5 young people themselves for a period of 2 to 12 months. They have the opportunity to express their solidarity by taking responsibility and committing to bring about positive changes in their local community, in their own country.
Part 2: Participation of young people in solidarity activities linked to humanitarian aid:
4) Volunteering within the framework of the European Solidarity Corps for humanitarian aid : The activities of this component aim to contribute to providing humanitarian aid based on needs aimed at preserving life, preventing and alleviating human suffering and maintaining dignity. human rights and to build the capacity and resilience of vulnerable or disaster-affected communities (eligible for young people aged 18 to 35 years old).
Action Art is active in the first part of the ESC program: Volunteering Projects. If you wish to participate, you have the choice between short-term and long-term projects according to what you prefer:
1) Short term: They last from 2 weeks to 2 months. You can participate in a short term program to see if you really want to participate in a long term European Solidarity Corps program. You will live in another country, learn about the culture and language of the host country, experience volunteering in an area that interests you. After a short European Solidarity Corps program, you can continue with a long-term program.
2) Long Term: Whether or not you have joined a short term program, you can participate in a long term European Solidarity Corps program. Cumulatively, you can participate in a European Solidarity Corps program during 12 months.
At the end of the program, you will receive a certificate called Youthpass to help you get your experience recognized. In this certificate, there will be details about your role in the facility, the training you attended and everything you learned.
You can express your willingness to participate in the European Solidarity Corps by registering on the European Solidarity Corps Portal. Registration is possible from 17 years old but you must be 18 years old and not more than 30 years old at the start date of the activity.
