about volunteering activities
Volunteering Activities - you can participate in the work of an organisation abroad. Volunteering projects involve many different kinds of activities in areas such as youth work, cultural activities, social care or environmental protection. You volunteer on an unpaid and full-time basis.
What you achieve and learn through volunteering is certified Europe-wide through the Youthpass recognition tool and European Solidarity Corps (ESC) certificate.
As an ESC volunteer you have access to the Online Linguistic Support that will help you to learn the language that you are using in your volunteer work.
Online Linguistic Support (OLS) has been designed to assist ESC participants to improve their knowledge of the language in which they volunteer so that they can make the most of the experience.
As the lack of language skills remains one of the main barriers to participation in youth mobility opportunities, the OLS makes linguistic support accessible, flexible and simple. It also contributes to reaching a one of the programme objectives, which is to promote language learning and linguistic diversity.
The ESC placement can last from a minimum of 2 weeks to a maximum of 12 months.
You must be between the ages of 18 and 30 years old to volunteer.
All essential costs related to your volunteer project are covered (accommodation, board and local transport that you may need). You will also receive a small amount of 'pocket money'.
All volunteers are covered by insurance during their time abroad.
