The Interreg Volunteer Youth (IVY) initiative

Want to make a difference? Join the Interreg Volunteer Youth (IVY) initiative to promote solidarity & cooperation among regions in Europe!

The Interreg Volunteer Youth (IVY) initiative is a pilot action to offer 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 European Territorial Cooperation and related values such as solidarity.

“Interreg Volunteer Youth” is part of the European Solidarity Corps initiative launched by President Juncker. More than 25 000 young Europeans have joined the European Solidarity Corps since last December, and more than 2 200 volunteers have already been contacted by 36 hosting organisations in the framework of the European Solidarity Corps.

The IVY initiative will offer similar advantages as the European Voluntary Service, covering notably volunteers´ travel, lodging, food and insurance.

The minimum volunteering period is 2 months and the maximum 6 months.

We encourage you to find out more about this amazing opportunity on the IVY website

Applications by young volunteers may be submitted via the European Youth Portal.
