European Solidarity Corps Volunteering - ESC

SEEDS Icelandic Experience

SEEDS, with the support of the European Solidarity Corps (ESC), offers opportunities to young people (18-30 years old) to be a volunteer in Iceland for a specific period of time (usually 5 months).

The European Solidarity Corps is the new European Union initiative which creates opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in projects in their own country or abroad that benefit communities and people around Europe.

The European Solidarity Corps allows a young person to be a volunteer in another country for a specified period, normally between 2 and 12 months. 

For more information on the European Solidarity Corps, please visit their website.
