European Solidarity Corps: the matching begins

European Solidarity Corps
Authorised organisations can now select potential employees, trainees or volunteers for their activities in the European Solidarity Corps.

Three months after the launch of the European Solidarity Corps,  organisations can offer European Solidarity Corps placements. Through the online system of the ESC, organisations can directly select young people interested in a solidarity placement.


In this first phase, organisations can apply for funding through existing EU funding programmes. Currently, eight programmes support the European Solidarity Corps. The online system of the European Solidarity Corps allows for direct matching between organisations and young people interested in a solidarity placement. 


To participate, each organisation will need to subscribe to the European Solidarity Corps Mission and its Principles, and to adhere to the European Solidarity Corps Charter that sets out the rights and responsibilities during all stages of the solidarity experience. Organisations who are already accredited with one of the funding programmes have access to the online tool automatically.


If you want to apply as a volunteer, trainee or employee you can register here, and introduce your personal details, skills, availabilities, motivation and upload your CV. Several hundred placement will be available as of this spring and thousands more will follow in the months ahead so don't miss this opportunity! Follow European Solidarity Corps on Facebook!
