Meet our ESC Volunteers
Meet our ESC
European Solidarity Corps (ESC) is a unique opportunity for young people to volunteer in various projects around Europe, where they could contribute to local communities and people. InterMediaKT has been hosting volunteers through the European Solidarity Corps programme since 2018 (former EVS). During the last 5 years, we welcomed 10 volunteers from different ESC programme and partner countries. The presence of foreign volunteers became a part of the organisation´s life, as the volunteers make the daily life more diverse and provide valuable help.
