Are you ready to run your European Solidarity Corps project? Make the most of the tools, advice and guidance available on how to deliver, manage and report on your funded project to guarantee a successful impact.
The tabs below form a toolkit for supporting Solidarity Corps beneficiaries throughout the project lifecycle. Bookmark this webpage and consult it throughout the delivery of your activities, as further guidance will be added when available.
With your Solidarity Corps project up and running, it is time to spread the word about its impact, share the achievements and keep your community up-to-date.
Dissemination is a term used by the European Commission in many of its documents and simply means to spread widely. All projects are encouraged to share (or disseminate) the successes of their project. This means that even after your project finishes, the successes can still have an impact in the future.
EU Emblem: acknowledging support
If you have been successful in applying for European Solidarity Corps funding, you will need to acknowledge the support of the European Union by using the European emblem and appropriate wording. This applies to projects across all actions. Find out how to acknowledge funding in our EU emblem guide (295 KB).
Erasmus+ Digital Toolkit
The Erasmus+ Digital Toolkit (1.3 MB) is a valuable resource which can be used by European Solidarity Corps beneficiaries as well for promoting projects on social media. Find expert advice, hints and tips on how organisations can showcase inspirational achievements and encourage participants to share their experiences using media platforms.
The European Commission (EC) has a number of tools for European Solidarity Corps projects to support you and assist with reporting requirements. They are useful to all actions.
Mobility Tool+ is the EC's online management and reporting system. Report templates for your project can be accessed via Mobility Tool+, including interim reports (submitted during your project’s lifecycle) and final reports (submitted after the project end date).The exact requirements are stated in your grant agreement. Please refer to this and your project handbook, or contact us if you are unsure about what you need to do.
Online linguistic support (OLS)
The Erasmus+ Online Linguistic Support (OLS) provides language assessments and courses for Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps participants and aims to improve their knowledge of the language in which they will volunteer or work abroad so that they can make the most out of their experience.
European Solidarity Corps participants are able to get a Youthpass certificate at the end of the experience. This is a European recognition tool for non-formal and informal learning in youth work, developed by SALTO, initially for the Youth in Action programme. Find out more on the Youthpass guide.
