Through this experience, young people get the opportunity to volunteer abroad, contribute with their efforts to a cause they believe in – be it, solidarity with refugees and migrants, work on environmental issues, activities for children or the elderly, support for non-governmental organisations, work for cultural events or a number of other topics.
Volunteering projects support individuals in improving their skills, enhancing their employability and gaining cultural awareness by providing opportunities of structured study, work experience, job shadowing, volunteering, training and teaching opportunities to staff and learners.
Stories from our Volunteers
When you say the word volunteering, some people imagine working without earning anything. I earned so many things during volunteering that you can’t even imagine. Living is not only about existing and earning money. There is so much more out there, through experiences such as the European Solidarity Corps (ESC), you learn a lot about life, gain new skills and experience, learn about Europe and the world, you grow up personally and professionally.Anastasia
