Solidarity Projects are non-profit activities that aim to achieve positive change in society through local actions organised by groups of young people. Think about the challenges in your neighbourhood and the causes you care about. These projects should be dedicated to such challenges, but can also contribute to addressing regional or even national problems. Participation in a solidarity project is an important non-formal learning experience through which young people can enhance their personal, educational, social and civic development.
Who can take part?
In order to create a Solidarity Project in your community, you first need to form a group of young people. This group must be composed of at least 5 young people (there is no maximum limit) between 18 and 30 years old, legally residing in the same country.
How long does it last?
Solidarity Projects can have a duration of between a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 12 months, and should be mainly part-time, so that it is possible to develop them during free time.
What does it cover?
You can expect 500 € a month to cover the cost of managing and implementing the project. If a coach is needed during the development of the project, the costs related to their involvement may also be covered.
