European Solidarity Corps > An alternative to ESC

To find a good ESC project is not easy. The competition is intense and only one in four make it to the application stage (after which generally all are placed - VAP have a good record).

However there is an easier alternative. VAP has a non-ESC medium to long term volunteering programme. These projects take place all over the world and the duration is up to you, ranging from 1 to 12 months. Volunteers pay their flights and often pay monthly fees to the hosting organisation but the application process is simple and fast.

For more information go to our projects database and click on the options ’1 to 6 months’ or ’more than 6 months’.

« We did a lot of conservation work, building hiking paths, tidying up wooded areas, removing weeds, planting trees, etc. The work was extremely successful and I found it very rewarding.  »
