Funding Scheme: 2018-06-11

Pgm2014 2020: Yes

Amorce:

The proposal for a new programme for the European Solidarity Corps is adopted today to broaden opportunities for about 350,000 young Europeans.

Text:

The new programme will allow the European Solidarity Corps to grow into a broad community of people and organisations ready to support those in need across our continent and beyond, helping to build resilient, cohesive societies. Young people, in turn, will gain skills, new friendships, and a strong sense of what it feels like to be European.

The programme will build on the achievements of the Corps in its first years of existence and creates one single entry point for young people ready to engage in solidarity. In particular, it will include: Volunteering activities in support of humanitarian aid operations in non-EU countries and Targeted measures for shorter duration or within one’s own country.
