Youth in Health in Action

The European Solidarity Corps offers young Europeans from 18 to 30 years old the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives. Aiming for 100,000 placements by 2020, NGOs, Member State authorities and other organisations can offer quality placements for volunteering, traineeships or jobs.

Health is an integral part of this initiative. There are many ways young people could play a part in health projects, making use of their skills be it language, communication, IT or medical skills. If you have ideas and projects which you think could provide young people from the Solidarity Corps with opportunities to learn and demonstrate solidarity, the Corps would like to hear from you.

Erasmus + opportunities

The European Commission has made three new videos available to show the great potential of the Erasmus+ programme.
These success stories feature the fields of:

  • staff mobility,
  • voluntary service
  • higher education traineeship.

The stories aim at presenting some of the Erasmus+ actions available for European citizens and the considerable advantages they can bring to all beneficiaries – students, staff, trainees, teachers and volunteers.
