Here is the list with answers to the most popular questions about us and what we do
During the voluntary service, young adults get involved in a non-profit project abroad for a limited period of time. This is an example of the value of a vibrant and social Europe. Voluntary services not only offer the opportunity to help others. At the same time, they expand one’s own competencies and offer unique experiences. The participating organizations and the local environment also benefit from the intercultural exchange. As a rule, volunteer service lasts between two and twelve months. Shorter projects starting at two weeks are possible for young people with fewer opportunities.
Participation in the European Solidarity Corps is free of charge. You may have to one has to pay a contribution to the travel expenses for the trip to the host country.
