Call European Solidarity Corps – Volunteering – a Bucharest, Romania – 06/2023 – 12/2023

    Nuova opportunità di partecipazione in un progetto European Solidarity Corps con Beyond Borders: “EASTERN PARTNERSHIP VOLUNTEERING PROGRAM”

    Posti disponibili per: 3 volontari (18-30);

    Dove: a Bucharest, Romania;

    Periodo: dal mese di Giugno al mese di Dicembre 2023;

    Descrizione del progetto: Europe cannot afford wasted talent, social exclusion, and youth disengagement; therefore EPVP 3.0 project provides youngsters with easily accessible opportunities to engage in solidarity actions, enabling them to act for the benefit of the community as active citizenship while gaining valuable experience and competences, thereby improving their further employability.

    Thus, the project is focusing on five objectives:

    1. Involve 6 NEET volunteers in COSI and its solidarity activities; hence, supporting them to become active, responsible, independent, development-seeker citizens; and equip them with further labor market and/or entrepreneurship competences.

    2. Improve COSI’s target group knowledge/attitude regarding aspects such as Human rights, sense of solidarity, volunteering, and active citizenship; as well as inclusion, inter-cultural dialogue, and tolerance; and combating: stereotypes and prejudices, racism and xenophobia, discrimination, social inequality, poverty, and exclusion by conducting monthly raise awareness campaigns/humanitarian actions (according to UN calendar).

    3. Increase the participation level of Romanian young NEETs in E+, ESC and EYE programs, by providing
    accessible and effective growth opportunities for at least 100 beneficiaries from the community, to gain useful
    experience and develop their competences, as well as facilitating their active citizenship attitude.

    4. Grow the awareness and participation enthusiasm level of youngsters/students in Bucharest/Ilfov regarding Erasmus+, ESC, EYE programs.

    5. Strengthen inter-cultural dialogue by building attitudes of tolerance and acceptance among local Romanian, EU, and EaP youngsters; discovering common roots, overcoming prejudices and stereotypes according to EU values.


    1. 6 Monthly Raise Awareness Campaigns according to UN Calendar, promoting: human rights, solidarity, volunteering, active citizenship and inclusion, inter-cultural acceptance, tolerance, and other important topics, with and for the local youth in Bucharest, through topic related outdoor events, non-formal workshops, seminars, training and debates, content creation (videos, posters, booklet, brochures, etc.). Each month will follow a topic and within the topic we will organise min. 5 related activities. The monthly topics will be decided among the whole COSI team.
    2. 3 Promotional workshops of ESC, E+ in faculties/high-schools with min. 50 young participants, where volunteers will share their ESC experience, promote the Programs and COSI’s opportunities.
    3. 6 Monthly inter-cultural evenings by promoting each country’s cultural aspects;
    4. 1 Humanitarian Aid initiative, by collecting, arranging, dividing clothes, food, hygiene articles, school supplies and other necessary benefits from donors, and providing to the disadvantaged youth.
    COSI will collaborate with our local partners who provides urgent aid and long-term inclusion support for homeless individuals, disadvantaged families, orphanages, and others. Besides, volunteers will participate in their on-going activities (one day per week) to work directly with the beneficiaries to promote the Erasmus+/ESC opportunities for the beneficiaries.


    Volunteers will be involved in COSI’s ongoing Erasmus+ and ESC projects. Usually, COSI is engaged (as partner/supporting NGO) in approx. 10 projects per year, involving around 50 Romanian participants/year in total, with focus on NEETs (future ESC volunteers abroad and E+ participants). Volunteers will promote the opportunities online and outdoor with the local beneficiaries and provide support, coordinate the project logistically, implement the selection and preparation process, keep communication with the participants, post-mobility workshops, evaluations, and dissemination. Nonetheless, we will organize Erasmus+ projects in Bucharest, and volunteers will be involved in the project’s implementation, not only in the mobility period (by facilitating sessions, ensuring the logistics, support for the participants) but in all the project life cycle (project management, logistic arrangements: hotels, catering, materials, stationery, etc.). Moreover, all volunteers will learn structurally from the coordinator how to write a project grant and afterwards apply with grant proposals the following deadline or a business plan to join the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program afterwards.
