The European Voluntary Humanitarian Aid Corps

Since September 2022, the PuntoSud Academy has been part of a consortium of five organizations, led by Lattanzio KIBS, in partnership with Bioforce, IECAH, and IFHV. The consortium is responsible for designing and delivering a comprehensive learning program for prospective volunteers of the European Voluntary Humanitarian Aid Corps, one of the strands of the European Solidarity Corps.

 

This program offers young people aged 18 to 35 the opportunity to participate in volunteering activities that support humanitarian aid operations.

 

To make the most of this experience, volunteers must be adequately trained. This includes a self-assessment, an e-learning program with a final test, and a 5-day face-to-face classroom course. These activities will provide them with the opportunity to carry out tasks needed to support the actions undertaken by their host organizations.

 

Within this program, PuntoSud, with the consortium led by Lattanzio KIBS, focuses on the steps that bring potential volunteers into humanitarian aid volunteering projects, from registration on the EU Solidarity Corps Portal to placement in a pool of volunteers available for selection by organizations.
