We’re delighted to share details of the new European Solidarity Corps programme, which was launched this week.

The European Solidarity Corps 2021-20127 will have a budget of almost €1.1 billion for all of Europe, to fund volunteering and solidarity projects for over a quarter of a million young people aged 18 to 30.

The programme has five key priorities: inclusionactive participation, health promotion and supporting environmental and digital transitions.
Taking part in the European Solidarity Corps is an inspiring and empowering experience for young people who want to help, learn, and develop; and the programme enables solidarity activities throughout the European Union and beyond.

For more details on what’s to come and how to get involved, visit our European Solidarity Corps page. You can also read the full press release about the new programme, or visit the European Solidarity Corps website.
