The European Solidarity Corps


The European Solidarity Corps is the new European Union initiative which creates opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in projects that benefit communities and people around Europe. The European Solidarity Corps is the pool of young people who register their interest to take part in solidarity-related projects, and who agree with and will uphold the Mission and Principles of the European Solidarity Corps.
When you register, your details will be held in the European Solidarity Corps system, and organisations will be able to search the database for people for their projects. Organisations will then ask selected participants to join these projects. You can register for the European Solidarity Corps when you are 17 years old, but you cannot start a project until you are over 18.

Those who register need to be a legal resident in the EU Member States or the following Partner Countries:
•    The Republic of North Macedonia and Turkey
•    Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway
•    Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia
•    Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine
•    Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia
•    Russian Federation
