Hosting Interreg Youth Volunteers in the Interreg Projects-European Solidarity Corps

The IVY offers the possibility to young Europeans aged 18-30 to serve as volunteers in cross-border, transnational or interregional programmes and related projects. The initiative is aimed at involving young European volunteers to support, promote and report the concrete achievements of these programmes and projects, as well as generally promote cooperation across borders and related values such as solidarity. The IVY will give volunteers the opportunity to familiarise with the Interreg programmes and projects, make them aware of the many benefits of collaboration among EU internal borders as well as enhance their sense of European solidarity, citizenship and civic engagement.

Each project partner in Interreg programmes can host an “Interreg Project Partner” who will contribute to Interreg project implementation with a selected task to be done over a defined period of time. The task shall focus on specific aspects or difficulties to be solved.

If you are interested in hosting a volunteer “Interreg Project Partner”, please fill in the Project Note  and send it to Ms Alessandra Cardaci: ivy@aebr.eu.
