Call for proposals EaSI 2016 - European Solidarity Corps – occupational strand VP/2016/018 Closed!


The occupational strand of the European Solidarity Corps aims at providing young people with the opportunity of a job, traineeship or apprenticeship in sectors that are engaged in solidarity activities and have a demand for highly motivated and socially-minded young people. In this context, the overall objective is to test and apply selection and matching processes to secure cross border placements of such young people.

This call has three specific objectives:

  • to establish one large-scale consortium which is able to collect and offer occupational opportunities to European Solidarity Corps participants in a broad range of solidarity activities throughout the Union;
  • to implement the activities necessary for matching to and placing European Solidarity Corps participants in such opportunities in an EU country other than their country of residence and to help the participants and the employers concerned address the related mobility obstacles.
  • to report on targets and rsults achieved and identify recommendations, where appropriate, in the interest of the development of the European Solidarity Corps.


The action will ensure the provision of customised employment and mediation services for the placement and integration of young mobile workers in the host country(ies), combined with financial support.

This call aims to ensure around 4000 to 6000 placements of European Solidarity Corps participants in the EU countries, other than their country of residence.
