The European Solidarity Corps is an EU initiative which creates opportunities for young people in Europe who agree with and uphold its Mission and Principles. This programme is aligned with IARS’ ethos. We were set up by young volunteers from across Europe as the first EU-wide, youth-led network on equality matters. Our mission remains to empower young people and marginalised groups to participate in public life as equal citizens.
“Not only did the internship help me feel like I was making an impact in society, but it also grew many skills that will assist me in my academic and working future. I met a variety of people online and communicated with people from all over the globe. My knowledge of international policy was expanded, which was the one thing I hoped for most.”Lauren Kirchhoff
