The EU upgrades the European Solidarity Corps!

On June 27, EU institutions confirmed the agreement to move the European Solidarity Corps (ESC) out of its pilot phase and make it a fully-fledged activity of the European Union. A very important step for an ever more engaged European citizenship! The ESC was created to help young people between 18 and 30 to participate in a range of solidarity activities in different fields (environment, culture, social services, helping refugees, migrants, children or the elderly) as a tangible expression of European values. The aim of the ESC is to contribute to addressing unmet societal needs, while enhancing young people’s personal, educational, social, civic and professional development.
