What are ESC volunteering teams?
The European Solidarity Corps volunteering teams give young people a chance to taste volunteering and perform tasks that can have a real impact. If you are ready to get your hands dirty while getting to know other young Europeans, the volunteering teams are for you!
Who can apply?
These solidarity activities are open to all 18-30 years old European Union citizens or residents, who are motivated to do voluntary work, learn new things and share your everyday life with youth from different countries. We especially welcome young people who really need the EU financial support in order to join international volunteering. The teams are open for all young Europeans, but we encourage application from young people who do not have much international experience or have less opportunities to get such experience due to health problems, geographical obstacles, cultural differences, social challenges or economic difficulties.
What costs does the EU grant cover?
Participants are covered by insurance (when volunteering abroad) and their travel costs will be reimbursed (up to a maximum sum based on distance calculator) after the project, and they will get board and lodging while on the project. Participants will also receive a small allowance (5 euros per day) for their personal expenses. The teams are also open for Finnish youth and other residents of Finland to apply.
If you have any questions please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
