European Solidarity Corps (ESC)

European Solidarity Corps (ESC)


The European Solidarity Corps (ESC) aims to foster solidarity in European society, engaging young people and organisations in accessible and high-quality solidarity activities. It offers young people opportunities to show solidarity and help resolve challenging situations across Europe through volunteering activities, traineeships or jobs as well as solidarity projects based on young people's own initiative.

ESC helps young people from Europe and programme countries to develop their sense of solidarity by participating, either individually or in group, in non-profit, unpaid voluntary activities.

The new ESC programme is financed by the European Union. Most of the actions are coordinated by the National Agencies in EU, with three deadlines for submission per year.
