Civic participation and attitudes » Number of volunteers abroad: Number of volunteers abroad

The number of young people attended in voluntary service abroad within the Action 2 "European Voluntary Service" of Youth in Action programme and the number of young people who attended AIESEC practical trainings in abroad.

The European Voluntary Service enables young people to carry out voluntary service for up to 12 months in a country other than their country of residence. It fosters solidarity among young people and is a true ‘learning service’. Beyond benefiting local communities, volunteers learn new skills and languages, and discover other cultures. Non-formal learning principles and practice are reflected throughout the project.

AIESEC Practical training in abroad programme enables more than 5 000 best university graduates worldwide to improve their skills working in foreign country company in every year.
