What is European Solidarity Corps?

The European Solidarity Corps is a European Union initiative which creates opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in projects in their own country or abroad, that benefit communities and people around Europe. European Solidarity Corps projects are available to people up to the age of 30 years old.

Depaul Ireland has been hosting and coordinating volunteers through the European Voluntary Service, and now the European Solidarity Corps, since 2004. Volunteers lead social activities, games, classes and lots more in our services. They bring life and fun into our services and really enrich the lives of our service users. They also share their own culture and language and get to experience different cultures.
