The activity is especially addressed to new accredited organizations, newcomers in the E+ Programme and Organisations with few experience in EVS/ESC projects.

Jump into Solidarity it’s also open to organizations with experience that are interested in working with new partners.

By exploring the European Solidarity Corps in different dimensions, methods and resources, this Training Course intend to promote innovation and creativity in the developing and management of ESC projects.

Through the principles and practices of non-formal education and in an atmosphere where participants can learn from each other and act with each other , “Jump into Solidarity” will open an intercultural dialogue and will make room for the acquirement of new skills and the exchange of methods and experiences within the volunteering world.

- to share and exchange new methods for developing competences and recognise learning with young people;
