What is ESC?

The European Solidarity Corps is a European Union initiative that creates opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in social impact projects in their own country or abroad benefitting communities and people around Europe.

These projects offer an inspiring and empowering experience, as well as the chance to bring change while developing your skills and competences. OCC offers a wide range of volunteering options for people to join our team through ESC.

Are you between 18 and 30 and looking for an opportunity to help the wider community, in Europe and beyond?
