Participant profile

We want to involve in the project participants who would be motivated to volunteer in the long term, in another country, who would like to share their knowledge and experience, culture and traditions, language and express solidarity as a value through volunteering activities. We do not want to force restrictions, with specific experience, education, or knowledge, so as not to lose sight of the idea of the European Solidarity Corps that anyone who wants to participate in volunteering can participate, including young people with fewer opportunities and specific situations.
