The European Solidarity Corps, a new program of the European Commission, was launched in 2016 as an initiative enabling young people aged 18-30 to gain experience, develop personal and professional development and work to build solidarity across Europe.


The 28 Member States of the European Union can fully participate in all activities of the European Solidarity Corps. In addition, participation in certain activities of the European Solidarity Corps is open to organizations from EFTA / EEA countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, EU candidate countries: Turkey and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and partner countries. The program enables the implementation of activities that will respond to important social issues. All activities must be of solidarity nature, at the same time giving young people the opportunity to gain new experiences, develop competences and skills.
