Projects will typically consist of thefollowing stages:
- Preparation (including practical arrangements, selection of participants, set up of agreements with partners and participants, linguistic/intercultural/task-related preparation of participants before departure);
- Implementation of activities
- Follow-up (including the evaluation of the activities, the formal recognition of the learning outcomes of participants during the activity, issue of the certificate of participation as well as the dissemination and use of the project's outcomes).
There is no minimum requirement regarding the number of organisations involved in a project. A single organisation holding a Quality Label can submit an application.
The applicant organisation can deliver the project by itself or in cooperation with associated partners which are not required to have a Quality Label. The applicant is accountable for the entire project but can delegate responsibilities to associated partners. For cross-border activities, the applicant will have to demonstrate its capacity to prepare participants in the country of departure and provide support upon return.
Young people express their willingness to participate in the European Solidarity Corps by registering on the European Solidarity Corps portal. Organisations have to select the participants through the database of young people registered.
