Funded Volunteering
in Europe

 What possibilities are there for funded volunteering in Europe? 

Please note that UK participation in volunteering projects that are funded by the European Union MFF (Multi-annual Financial Framework) has been affected by the withdrawal of the UK from the EU.  As a general rule, participants in Erasmus+ projects must be established in an EU Member State or a third country associated to the Programme.

There may however be possibilities for participation volunteering projects funded by the Council of Europe (of which the UK is still a member), such as The European Youth Foundation

There is currently an opportunity for participation in an in-person 7-day seminar on anti-militarism in Vienna, Austria from 25th June to 2nd July 2023. The title will be “Strategies Against War” and this will be the second activity in the series “No War Anywhere!”. The first activity took place in April and involved young people from 15 countries in Europe.

The “No War Anywhere!” series is a training on campaigning and advocacy, where young activists will strategize their campaigns, learn about digital communication, (self)-caring while being an activist, etc.

People with a concrete idea for an antimilitarist campaign are encouraged to apply, and will be accepted on a rolling basis. Please note that the deadline for applications for the Vienna seminar is 7th May 2023. To apply and to find out more about the “No War Anywhere!” series please click here
