Would you like to volunteer abroad for a longer period of time and this almost free of charge? This can be done through the European Solidarity Corps (ESC).
As a young person (18-30), you can spread your wings during an ESC project. You will work as a volunteer in an organization abroad to contribute to society. Your range of tasks can be very diverse, just like the host organizations you can end up with. JOETZ becomes your sending organization and provides guidance and support from your search for a project up to and including your return.
JOETZ can only support young people who live in Belgium. If you live in the Netherlands, we advise you to contact our partner Eastpackers.
