We are glad to announce that our NGO Associazione A Rocca got the accreditation to work in the field of European Solidarity Corps.
Thus, in the next months we will work hard to submit some applications in the following areas we chose: environment, entrepreneurship and culture. We hope our actions will have a positive result at local level. In the same time, if you are looking for some sending ESC institutions, do not hesitate to contact us!
What is the European Solidarity Corps?
The European Solidarity Corps is the new European Union initiative which creates opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in projects in their own country or abroad that benefit communities and people around Europe.
The young people who participate in the European Solidarity Corps will all agree with and uphold its Mission and Principles.
You can register for the European Solidarity Corps when you are 17 years old, but you cannot start a project until you are over 18. European Solidarity Corps projects will be available to people up to the age of 30 years old.
After completing a simple registration process, European Solidarity Corps participants could be selected and invited to join a wide range of projects, such as helping to prevent natural disasters or rebuild afterwards, assisting in centres for asylum seekers, or addressing different social issues in communities.
Projects supported by the European Solidarity Corps can last from two to twelve months. They will usually be located within the European Union Member States.
