In a nutshell SocialErasmus is an Erasmus Student Network (ESN) international project which aims to involve young citizens into volunteering activities during their mobility experience, that make a social change in the society.

SocialErasmus is an international project by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) which promotes a social attitude among young citizens participating in mobility programmes, to facilitate their integration into the local community while gives them the chance to make a long lasting social change in society through volunteering activities. The project goes under the slogan: Leave your mark!

The aim of SocialErasmus is to enrich the international experience of students abroad with volunteering activities that allow them to understand society’s problems and to work on the solutions. SocialErasmus provides an opportunity for international students to get to know other realities and learn how they can contribute to improve society as citizens of the world.

Our mission is to provide young citizens the opportunity to do more with their mobility experience, to make a difference and create a positive social change through volunteering.

Vision of the project is to show the added value of volunteering as a part of a mobility experience.

Why SocialErasmus?

During a mobility experience, we are confronted with different realities than our own. Our host communities may have different needs than ours, and we can help to fulfil these needs. Getting to know a new country goes further than participating in fun activities - it also means getting to know what it struggles with. SocialErasmus is a project that provides the opportunity for an international student to get to know their new country in all its aspects.
