The European Solidarity Corps is the new European Union initiative that enables young people to show solidarity with communities in their respective country as well as abroad.
European Solidarity Corps funding for volunteering projects helps organisations broaden their impact by hosting volunteers or sending volunteers abroad. These projects give young people an opportunity to take part in organisations’ day-to-day activities – potentially a very enriching experience for volunteers and organisations alike.
Volunteering projects are the most common type of project. Organisations taking part must hold an appropriate Quality Label (or Erasmus+ volunteering accreditation). They can apply for a European Solidarity Corps grant to cover: individual volunteering (2-12 months, or, in some cases, 2 weeks to 2 months) team volunteering (2 weeks to 2 months, 10-40 participants).
