European Solidarity Corps (ESC) – international volunteers

Every year, thanks to the support of the European Solidarity Corps, young people can gain an international volunteering experience at the de Hoge Rielen. 

We bring together foreign young people who collaborate in our organisation. This project offers international volunteers the opportunity to discover and develop their talents. Accessible activities contribute to connection, solidarity, democracy and European citizenship. 

You will come across international volunteers in the climbing forest, in the café, at the reception desk, in the restaurant, during workshops, etc. 

Volunteers 2022: Sondos from Jordan, Valentina from Mexico/Spain, Veronica from Romania, Sasha from Ukraine and Aljoša from Serbia
