With the European Solidarity Corps 2019 Call due to be released by the end of the year, now is the time to get your Quality Label!
The Quality Label is an accreditation required by all organisations that wish to be involved in Volunteering activities, Traineeships and Jobs, and is your first step towards applying for funding under the European Solidarity Corps initiative. There is no deadline and you can apply for the label throughout the year. You do not require Quality Label for Solidarity projects.
If you are planning to make applications for European Solidarity Corps funding under the 2019 Call, you should apply for your Quality Label now. You can access the ESC52 Quality Label form and download our guide for applicants (747 KB) to help you every step of the way.
It can take up to eight weeks to process your application. Once you have the accreditation, you can access the Placement Administration and Support System (PASS), where you can search for participants or attract young people to your projects by promoting your opportunities.
If your organisation is already accredited under Erasmus+ for the European Voluntary Service (EVS), you do not need to apply for accreditation. You have automatic access to PASS.
