How to become an ESC Volunteer
What is the ESC volunteering?
The European Solidarity Corps brings together young people (18 to 30 years old) to build a more inclusive society, supporting vulnerable people and responding to societal and humanitarian challenges. It offers an inspiring and empowering experience for young people who want to help, learn and develop and provide a single entry point for such solidarity activities throughout the Union and beyond.
