Information for organisations who want to get involved in the European Solidarity Corps

The European Solidarity Corps is a major opportunity for organisations of all types to involve young people in projects related to European solidarity.

Organisations of all types can now search for and recruit young people for Corps projects through the new Placement Administration and Support System (PASS). Download the User Guide for PASS.

If your organisation is already accredited under Erasmus+ for European Voluntary Service (EVS), or certified for EU Aid Volunteers, then it is already automatically able to access the pool of Corps participants and search for participants for your projects.

The matching tool does not replace the European Youth Portal's EVS Volunteering Database but complements it by providing a huge bank of motivated young people who are waiting to be offered placements in solidarity-related projects.

To start using the Placement Administration and Support System, simply click on the "Administrator login" button at the bottom of this page, and login with the same EU Login / ECAS account details that you currently use to access the European Youth Portal's Volunteering Database.

On the other hand, if your organisation is not already involved in these schemes, then you could either apply to join them or seek funding through any of these other EU programmes which are related to the European Solidarity Corps:

Details of all of the different programmes are available in the factsheet below.

If your organisation would like to start working with European Solidarity Corps participants, and needs more information about how it can become accredited for European Voluntary Service or certified for EU Aid Volunteers, or how to apply for funding under one of the other programmes, then please visit the specific website for each programme, either above or via the links in the factsheet.
