We help to facilitate the exchange of volunteers between our members. Each year more than 20 young people are either hosted or sent by Caravan members. Our volunteers get to experience first-hand life as a circus trainer in an interational circus school.
There are two types of volunteering you could get involved in:
>European-funded programme: European Solidarity Corps
>Volunteer internationally (non-European funded)

Caravan has a network of exchange for volunteers within Europe, to support the mobility of young people in circus.
By getting involved in the real-life activities of our youth and social circus schools, young people are able to boost their competencies, increase their international awareness and have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
The European Solidarity Corps (formally known as European Voluntary Service) is the new European Union initiative which creates opportunities for young people to volunteer or work in projects in their own country or abroad that benefit communities and people around Europe.
You have to be 18-30 years old to take part (you can apply when you’re 17)
