These events provide support and guidance to organisations that want to provide volunteering opportunities, traineeships and employment placements for young people involved in the European Solidarity Corps. We will be scheduling these to start in 2019. Check back here for listings.

These are training activities that support volunteers and trainees. They include on-arrival and midway training for in-place volunteers, trainees and employees. We will also organise training events for returned volunteers. Listings of these events will be published here when available.
