The European Volunteering project is an action of the European Commission’s European Solidarity Corps -ESC program (before European Voluntary Service -EVS). Its goal is to promote the mobility and exchanges of young people between 18 and 30 years of age. It aims at offering them the opportunity of knowing new ways of living, new cultures, languages and training through non-formal learning in another non-profit organization in another country, generally in Europe.
The projects can last from a minimum of 2 weeks up to a maximum of 12 months.
There are a lot of projects regarding various subject areas: art, culture, environment, youth, elderly people, sports, leisure activities and communications, among many others.
