European Solidarity Corps projects are volunteering opportunities for individuals and groups of young people aged 18-30. Projects are open to young people who want to work for a common good and what they consider important and want to promote solidarity. The acts respond to a recognized need and benefit the local community.
ESC funding covers participating travel reimbursement (up to a certain amount), accommodation, meals, insurance, daily pocket money, and linguistic support. It is possible to get funding also for exceptional costs to enable and support the participation of all types of young people.
