Young people express their willingness to participate in the European Solidarity Corps by registering on the European Solidarity Corps Portal. The registration at the European Solidarity Corps Portal is possible as of 17 years of age but participants must have reached 18 and must not be older than 30 at the start date of the activity.
Members States of the European Union and third countries associated to the Programme can fully take part in all the Actions of the European Solidarity Corps (Programme Countries).
In addition, some Actions are open for participation of other countries (Partner Countries).
The ESC programme involves not only individuals but also youth organizations who provide various activities either as supporting organization either as hosting organization.
