EU programmes

 

The Erasmus + Fund is the most popular one to fund volunteering activities. The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF), which was adopted as a legislative dossier during the Bulgarian EU Council Presidency, is based on the existing structures, mainly the European Voluntary Service, in order to attract 100 000 young European citizens to participate in activities under European Union Solidarity Fund by 2020. European Union Solidarity Fund is set up to offer young people (aged between 17-30) in Europe the chance to be hired by a non-governmental organization, local government or a private company by working or making volunteer work during social and/or natural challenges in the EU for example: natural disasters; tackling social challenges such as social exclusion, poverty, health and demographic challenges; or working on the integration of refugees.
