What is European Solidarity Corps?
The European Solidarity Corps is an initiative which gives a chance to young people to learn and gain new skills through full-time voluntary work in a foreign country as well as to be actively involved in creating a more open, inclusive and welcoming society, which is attentive to those in need.

The role of the ESC volunteers is to help young people with their daily living skills. Support in this area is a vital building block to achieving independence and autonomy for our homeless community. Due to the nature of the work and the participant group we work with, we are seeking volunteers who are interested in working with disadvantaged individuals and can see both the support that is needed as well as the potential that people have.
