European Solidarity Corps

The European Solidarity Corps (ESC) is a new European Union initiative which creates opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in projects in their own country or abroad that benefit communities and people around Europe.

It builds upon, and is currently piloted in, the European Voluntary Service (EVS) element of Erasmus+ as well as other EU funding programmes. The plan proposes that Erasmus+ National Agencies will manage the ESC in each country.

The European Commission has recently announced plans to further develop the European Solidarity Corps and launched the registration page, encouraging young people and organisations to register their interest.

In the UK, Eurodesk UK continues to relay information for young people and organisations interested in taking part.
