Delivered by Leargas, the workshop is suitable for youth and community organisations, schools and sports groups who would like to know more about the European Solidary Corps programme.
The European Solidarity Corps gives opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in projects in their own country or abroad that benefit communities and people around Europe.
Participants (18-30yrs) can volunteer with youth, community, educational and sporting groups in Europe for a period of between 2 weeks and 10 months.
The workshop will explain the European Solidarity Corps, its benefits to young people and organisations, while emphasising the particular features of the programme.
While Irish people can volunteer overseas, local organisations can host volunteers thus gaining access to a broad range of skills and knowledge.
The European Solidarity Corps is also a great tool to promote solidarity, challenge prejudice and learn about new cultural and social beliefs.
