Our Organising Team of Volunteer 2019
Merhaba, salam, buna and a warm hello from the European Solidarirty Corps team of volunteers. Welcome to our daily life of exchanging different languages and cultures whereever we are. Together, we are 20 volunteers not just from Turkey, Azerbaijan and Germany but also from Ghana, Latvia, Rwanda, Romania, Russia, Spain and Ukraine brought together with the common purpose of sending a message of joy and hope into Harja, Romania.
Through this project we are aiming to promoting volunteering and its benefits as well as Non Formal Education as a tool for societal development, cohesion and solidarity organising a large festival: “Experiential Learning Forum”. The Festival is aimed at inviting all ESC volunteers and organisations, schools, universities, representatives of educational institutions, public bodies, companies, and every member of the public who is interested in discovering more of the benefits that are encompassed in the ESC program, and other related programmes like Erasmus+.
Based in Harja we encourage people to say yes to opportunities in life, enjoy community and look outside of the box. Grow with us, volunteer and above all have fun. Through our great pool of people, we can draw a large source of strength and learn from each other and professional trainings. We have a vision, we are dreamers, and we are achievers.Your Title Goes Here

In the long run we are aiming at creating a recurring event to organise the Experiential Learning Festival yearly and dedicate this event to youth, education, culture, environment, solidarity, cohesion, societal growth and participation.
Organising such an event through solidarity intervention of volunteers from various countries and backgrounds, including those with fewer opportunities plays a big role into bringing also various inputs, perspectives on education, youth, adulthood, growth, cultural heritage, employability, environmental sustainability, and underlining inclusion through the factual presence of so many individuals, backgrounds, ages, cultures in the same place, with the same purpose.
