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

The European Solidarity Corps 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.

 

How to get involved?

Quality Label

In order to participate in the European Solidarity Corps, volunteering, traineeship and job activities, organisations should obtain a Quality Label. A Quality Label ensures compliance with the principles and objectives of the European Solidarity Corps. Organisations apply for a Quality Label to the National Agency of their country or regional SALTOs in case of Partner Countries. Applications for Quality Label can be submitted on a continuous basis.

Organisations from Partner Countries outside the EU and holding a Quality Label can participate in volunteering activities as partners. For further information on eligible Participating and Partner Countries and eligibility criteria, please refer to the European Solidarity Corps Guide available on https://ec.europa.eu/youth/solidarity-corps.

Please note that organisations with a valid European Voluntary Service accreditation can participate in volunteering activities without holding a Quality Label.
