    National Agencies

    To bring the European Solidarity Corps as close as possible to the participants and make sure it works well across different countries, the EU works with National Agencies to manage the programme.

    The National Agencies are based in the EU Member States and their role involves:

    • providing information on the European Solidarity Corps
    • selecting projects to be funded
    • monitoring and evaluating the European Solidarity Corps
    • supporting applicants and participants
    • working with other National Agencies and the EU
    • promoting the European Solidarity Corps
    • sharing success stories and best practices
