The past year was a challenging year where we needed to reconsider and reshape the way we do and organize projects. In this spirit, we wanted to find a way to continue to support young volunteers as we have in the past with our ESC program. In light of the times, we decided to start our volunteering program for 2020/21 online with 3 young people from Ukraine and Belarus. This is a new experience for us, as we have never hosted an online volunteering service and we hope that it can still be as beneficial to our volunteers. Check our website for the info about great online activities run by our volunteers and who knows, maybe one day we will meet in person again?
Trial & Error Kulturlabor Berlin is looking for a long-term volunteer from Germany to join an ESC project in Rustavi, Georgia starting anytime in 2020 for 12 months. Follow the link to read more information about the project and hosting organisation. European Solidarity Corps volunteering projects are available to people from 18 to 30 years old.
Casa Kuà is a trans* inter* queer community & health centre in Kreuzberg, Berlin. This space is organised by trans* and non binary BIPoCs to make health more accessible to other trans*, inter*, non binary and queer people, and especially for those affected by racism.
Thinking of applying for European Solidarity Corps? We will come together to share our unique experiences that came from our year as ESC volunteers. Get to know more about Erasmus+ and the ESC programme from our first hand experiences, at a time when activities had to be shifted around and how we managed to work on some of our projects regardless. We will be sharing results from selected projects and engage in open discussions on the processes while answering your questions.
One person from the EYFA office will be there to help you with organizational questions, application tips, and best practices on the ESC.

Festival Y?! will take place 21 – 24 August 2020 in Estonia, Annimatsi Kamping, gathering individuals and grassroots groups to discuss how to build a strong and inclusive movement for systemic political action in
There is no place for racism or anti-black racism in our grassroots social & climate justice movement.
We encourage all of our network and readers of this website to self-educate (e.g. here bit.ly/ANTIRACISMRESOURCES) and to reflect on the global state of pandemia and the recent uprisings for racial justice as opportunities to resist, dismantle, and sabotage this white-supremacist, colonialist regime. This uprising against excessive, brutal, and militarized policing has called attention to the pervasiveness of anti-blackness in our communities. There is no way forward without mobilizing our resources and energy towards the powerful ongoing efforts to defend black lives and towards the political necessity of reparations and related wealth redistribution.
As we are based in Germany, we acknowledge that anti-black racism is not a systemic problem only in the US, but also deeply a european one. We stand in solidarity with the anti-racism movement here in Germany whose activism combats pervasive institutionalized racism, condemns racialized police brutality and profiling, and decolonizes our streets. We stand in solidarity with the Movement for Black Lives and all the intersectional internationalist movements fighting for decolonization and racial justice worldwide.
Racial justice is climate justice. Black disabled lives matter. Black trans lives matter. ALL Black lives matter.
Due to the increasing need for care and solidarity during the lock-down moments of the pandemic, our volunteers are conducting weekly solidarity actions for people falling under certain risk group categories. Every Friday we will gather to do and deliver shopping for those unable to, cooking for the homeless, engaging in neighborhood book-exchanges, etc.
To join and help, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The actions will be documented and volunteers will have the opportunity to share knowledge and insights gained at an online info share on the 13th of August! Take care of one another.
