European Solidarity Union
The European Solidarity Corps is the 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.
A Solidarity Project is an activity that a young person can carry out in a group of five people or more to help to bring positive change to the local community. It is set up and implemented by young people themselves in a place where they live.
Think about challenges in your neighbourhood and the causes that matter to you. The project should be devoted to challenges within your community, but it can also help to tackle regional or even national issues. Together with addressing the local challenges, a Solidarity Project should also demonstrate European value by taking priorities identified at European level such as, for instance, inclusion, climate change, democratic engagement, citizenship or gender equality.
After completing a simple registration process, European Solidarity Corps participants could be selected and invited to join a wide range of projects, such as helping to prevent natural disasters or rebuild afterwards, assisting in centres for asylum seekers, or addressing different social issues in communities.
Projects supported by the European Solidarity Corps can last from two to twelve months. They will usually be located within the European Union Member States.
