Volunteer in Stuttgart, Germany
What is long-term volunteering in the framework of the European Solidarity Corps?
The European Solidarity Corps is a European Union initiative that gives young people an opportunity to volunteer or participate in projects that benefit communities and people around Europe.
Our individual volunteering projects through the European Solidarity Corps are an excellent opportunity to contribute to the daily work of a local organisation that actively benefits the local community, learn new skills, spend time in Germany, learn German – and return home with unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.
Our projects last from 11 to 12 months. They are full-time (from 30 to 36 hours a week, please refer to the individual projects).
After your ESC experience you’ll receive a youth pass certificate to show your improved and/ or acquired competences regarding your personal, educational, and professional development.
