European Solidarity Corps - 8th parliamentary term
Event date: 06/09/2018
The setting-up of a European Solidarity Corps has been agreed by European Parliament and European Council negotiators in June 2018.
It aims to be the EU's main entry-point for young people wanting to volunteer or work on projects to benefit communities and people across Europe.
The purpose is to give young people the opportunity to acquire valuable competences for personal, social, civic and professional development, including learning and training, while helping other people.
Projects include education, health, environment protection, work with children and elderly people as well as with migrants and asylum seekers with priority given to charitable work.
