The ESC is a funding programme of the EU that creates opportunities for young people to volunteer, work, train and run their solidarity projects that benefit communities. A Solidarity Project is an in-country solidarity activity -based on non-formal learning – initiated by young people themselves for a period from 2 to 12 months, addressing key challenges directly linked to the local community they live in, but with a clear EU added value. 

“Post Co(vi)ding Academy” is a project implemented in the framework of the European Solidarity Corps. This ESC Project aims to empower Greek Youth (17-19 years old) who reside in the region of Attica and have not succeeded in the national exams during the 2020 examination period, but also students that are studying subjects that either aren’t in their area of interest or are irrelevant to the current and future job market. The project will provide high-quality and interactive virtual courses covering a wide area of digital skills such as Web development, HTML, Java, Cybersecurity, and more. The project is co-funded by European Solidarity Corps and the Youth and Lifelong Learning Foundation in Greece.
