Are you interested in humanitarian aid? Looking for volunteering opportunities? EU Aid Volunteers brings volunteers and organisations together from different countries, providing practical support to humanitarian aid projects and contributing to strengthening local capacity and resilience of disaster-affected communities.

Participants in the EU Aid Volunteers initiative must be over 18 years and be a citizen of an EU Member State or a long-term resident in the EU. Volunteers receive accommodation and travel expenses, insurance, ongoing learning and development, a monthly allowance, and a resettlement allowance to help with expenses of returning home.

From 1 January, the Commission’s Education and Culture department (DG EAC) is in charge of the EU Aid Volunteers.

This initiative will soon become ‘Volunteering in humanitarian aid field’ as part of the new European Solidarity Corps. To stay tuned, please visit the European Youth portal and grants page.
