European Solidarity Corps

Note: if you’ve completed a long-term EVS (two to 12 months) you cannot take up a volunteering position, but you can still register for the occupational strand (i.e. seek a traineeship or a job).

Anyone who wishes to take part in the European Solidarity Corps will need to agree with and uphold its Mission and Principles. If you’re aged between 17 and 30, you can register your interest online. You’ll be asked for some basic details at first, as well as the following:

  • which countries you’d like to be placed in
  • whether you want to volunteer or seek a traineeship or a job
  • what type of activities you’re interested in
  • what experiences and skills you have.

To find out more (including how to register) visit the European Solidarity Corps site or contact Suzanne Kavanagh or Noeleen O’Callaghan.

Organisations play a vital role in the European Solidarity Corps as they can offer placements to young people registered for the Corps. Any organisation that takes part in the European Solidarity Corps needs to agree with and uphold its Mission and Principles. Each participating organisation needs to comply with high quality standards and be accredited with a Quality Label.

If your organisation is already accredited for European Voluntary Service then it is accredited to take part in the European Solidarity Corps. Accredited organisations can use the Placement Administration and Support System (PASS) to search for and recruit European Solidarity Corps participants. This matching tool filters registered volunteers based on their stated preferences for work and region. Staff who are already listed in your organisation’s EVS accreditation are automatically enabled to access PASS through their existing EU Login/ECAS accounts.

For more information, check the European Solidarity Corps website or contact Suzanne Kavanagh or Noeleen O’Callaghan.

European Voluntary Service

If you’re already taking part in EVS, then you will follow the project lifecycle through to the end as normal (reporting etc.). Under current (June 2018) guidelines from the European Commission, you will be able to apply for EVS in the upcoming 04 October deadline.

If you need any more information contact Suzanne Kavanagh or Noeleen O’Callaghan.

Strategic EVS

If you’re already taking part in Strategic EVS, then you will follow the project lifecycle through to the end as normal (reporting etc.). Note that no further funding opportunities for Strategic EVS are currently available.

If you need any more information contact Suzanne Kavanagh or Noeleen O’Callaghan.
