About

Individual volunteering is a full-time unpaid solidarity activity that lasts from two to 12 months. In some cases, volunteering activities of two weeks to two months can be put in place for young people with fewer opportunities. This type of solidarity activity will give young people the chance to take part in the daily work of organisations and perform tasks that can have a real impact. Activities can take place either in a country other than the country of residence of the participant (cross-border) or in the country of residence of the participant (in-country).

Volunteering teams are solidarity activities allowing teams of 10 to 40 European Solidarity Corps participants from at least two different countries to volunteer together for a period between two weeks and two months. Such solidarity activities could especially contribute to the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in the European Solidarity Corps.

Experienced organisations apply for a long-term Volunteering Partnership projects in two stages.

In the first stage, the applicant organisation provides an overall description of the project, laying down objectives, relevance, and impact if successful. If the application is successful, a three-year framework partnership is signed by the organisation and Léargas.

The award of a Volunteering Partnership accreditation allows the organisation to apply for funding annually. These applications will not need to go through further qualitative assessment. Approved projects may be made up of individuals and/or volunteering teams.

Traineeships are periods of full-time work practice of between two and six months, renewable once for a maximum duration of 12 months within the same participating organisation. This type of solidarity activity should include a learning and training component, to help the participant gain relevant experience with a view to developing competences for personal, educational, social, civic and professional development. It should be based on a written traineeship agreement agreed at the beginning of the traineeship in accordance with the applicable regulatory framework of the country where the traineeship takes place. Traineeships must not in place of jobs and should be remunerated by the host organisations.

Jobs are solidarity activities that last from three to 12 months, paid for by the participating organisation employing the European Solidarity Corps young person. The jobs must include a learning and training component and be based on a written employment contract, which respects all the terms and conditions of employment as defined in national law or applicable collective agreements, or both, of the country in which the job is being carried out. The financial support to the organisations offering jobs shall not exceed twelve months in cases when the duration of the employment contract exceeds twelve months.

See p.36 (Traineeships and Jobs) in the Programme Guide.

Young people who want to form a group to run a solidarity project must be registered in the European Solidarity Corps Portal.
