Volunteering in the EU and beyond
Volunteering is a great way of contributing to local communities at home or abroad, and at the same time gaining useful experience, developing new skills and making friends. The EU offers many different types of volunteering opportunities with the European Solidarity Corps both in Europe and, in the case of humanitarian aid projects abroad. Volunteering activities are unpaid, but all cost are covered.
