Volunteering: Commission proposes a boost for the mobility of young people

The European Commission proposed the launch of an initiative to create more opportunities for young people to volunteer across Europe.

Young people who wish to volunteer in another Member State currently do not have enough opportunities to do so.

With this proposal, the Commission is putting forward a solution that respects Europe's diversity of volunteering schemes and allows them to better inter-operate and open up to volunteers from other EU countries.

The proposal is part of the EU's "Renewed Social Agenda: Opportunities, Access and Solidarity in 21st century Europe".  It contributes to the agenda's objectives by opening up access to new opportunities for mobility, non-formal education and solidarity across borders.
