EU Aid Volunteers

The European Union’s new initiative to support humanitarian aid programmes.

 

The EU Aid Volunteers programme offers:
• Opportunistes for European citizens to]become EU Aid Volunteers in humanitarian projects worldwide, showing solidarity with those who most need it,
• Professional support by trained and well-prepared volunteers to communities affected by disaster,
• Capacity building for local staff and volunteers of organisations in countries hit by disasters,
• Technical assistance for organisations based in Europe to strengthen their capacity to participate in the EU Aid Volunteers initiative.

Who can apply to be an EU Aid Volunteer?

Candidates for EU Aid Volunteers in-country projects must be over 18 years of age (no lower age limit for online volunteers) and be citizens of EU Member States or long-term residents in the EU. Citizens from other countries, such as EU candidate and potential candidate countries, countries in the EEA or the European Neighbourhood Policy may apply, but this depends on agreements being made between the EU and these countries.
