If you are looking for an experience, where you can find lots of learning opportunities, new friends, discover new cultures and help the local community with a social project, then the European Solidarity Corps can be good for you.

If you have any special needs, there will be a strong support system, so don't hesitate in finding more information and taking advantage of this opportunity.
In the European Solidarity Corps (ESC), you will find around 5500 opportunities in EUROPE to go for volunteering up to 1 year (minimum 2 months). Different projects will offer different activities in different social fields. You will find projects connected with environmental protection, youth work, cultural activities, inclusion of people with disabilities, rural development, animal shelters, etc.
