What is ESC?

The European Solidarity Corps (ESC) is an initiative of the EU that allows young people, between 18-30 years of age, to have a non-formal learning experience abroad, for a duration between 2 weeks and 12 months. During this period abroad, volunteers have the opportunity to improve and acquire skills for their personal and professional development and also for their social integration. In the end, each volunteer receives a YouthPass certificate confirming participation, skills and description of the project.

All costs related to the volunteering are covered: round-trip travel, board and lodging, language course, health insurance, transport on-site, visa and a so-called “pocket money”. A commitment of 30/35 hours of volunteering work at the host organization per week is expected.

Profile: Being a motivated young person living in Georgia and has not taken part in ESC or EVS projects before, except those who have carried out an ESC/EVS project for no more than 59 days.

Sherry Anderson - “Volunteers don't get paid, not because they're worthless, but because they're priceless.” I would add that this great cause is the glue that will bring us together for the good of others
