European Voluntary Corps
The ESC or European Voluntary Corps (formerly European Voluntary Serv ice) is a program for young people that would like to get involved with a volunteering organisation in a foreign country. The program is funded by the European Union. It works as a partnership between two organisations, one as a sending organisation and the other as a receiving organisation. The volunteers will mostly work in topics related to culture, sport, young people and environmental protection. The average stay of a voluntary service is from 6 to 12 months, but there’s also shorter projects spanning 2 months or even rarely 3 weeks.
You can find every ESC-accredited Organisation and their focuses in the database of the European Youth Portal of the European Union.
You can find general information about ESC here.
As we are only a small organisation, we can usually only offer young people from our region (Dresden/Sachsen) the opportunity to be their sending organisation. You would also have to find a receiving organisation yourself, which the ESC Database could help you with. It’s also a good idea to set up an account at the PASS database.
If any of this is not a problem for you, we look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you in a more personal interview.
