What is ESC about?

The European Solidarity Corps opens up more and better opportunities covering a broad range of areas, such as integration of migrants, environmental challenges, prevention of natural disasters, education and youth activities. It also supports national and local actors, in their efforts to cope with different societal challenges and crises.

It aims also to complement the efforts made by Member States to support young people and ease their school-to-work transition under the Youth Guarantee by providing them with additional opportunities to make a start into the labour market in the form of traineeships or jobs in solidarity-related areas within their respective Member State or across borders.
