Open Cultural Center and European Solidarity Corps

The European Solidarity Corps is the new 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.

After completing a simple registration process, European Solidarity Corps participants could be selected and invited to join a wide range of projects, such as helping groups in vulnerable positions, assisting in centres for asylum seekers, or addressing different social issues in communities.

Open Cultural Center offers a wide range of opportunities for people to join our European Solidarity Corps projects. This website has the purpose to make all the possibilities visible for you!
