SocialErasmus (SE) is an ESN international project that aims to involve young citizens during their mobility experience through volunteering activities that take social action, fostering change in the society.
SocialErasmus is an international project by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) that 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. With SocialErasmus at least one of the following causes is targeted: animals, disasters, discrimination, education, environment, health, poverty, and/or violence. The project results in numerous SocialErasmus activities organised all over Europe, sharing one aim, one mission, one vision and one slogan:
Leave your mark!


The aim of SocialErasmus is to enrich the international experience of young people abroad with volunteering activities that allow them to understand society’s problems and to work on the solutions. SocialErasmus provides an opportunity for international young people 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.

Show the added value of volunteering as a part of a mobility experience through SocialErasmus.
