Every second Friday in a month we are going to talk with a new guest who volunteered outside of the country as a part of the European Solidarity Corps project. Our goal is to answer the most common questions – what are the biggest challenges and what are the best moments of living abroad, what to do when you don’t know the language of the country, what kind of support you should have of the organization, how to choose the right project for you, etc..? So, if you want to know more about the European Solidarity Corps (ESC) volunteering opportunities and to prepare yourself for everything that awaits you in a new country, this is the right channel for you.
If you are a young person or you may know young people that want to get involved in the experience of living and working in an international environment – the radio show “LIVE” is for you.
