Who are we ?

The Collective for a European Civic Service is a French association founded in 2018 in Paris which aims to extend European mobility to all young Europeans through the creation of a European civic service (6 months in the country of origin followed by 6 months in the European country of their choice), giving young people the opportunity to live a full year of European experience.

Already equipped with two promotions in Metz and Strasbourg, launched with Unis-Cité, one in Trento in Italy, and working on the creation of several others in France and in Europe (Spain, Malta, Balkans), the Collectif pour un Service Civique Européen stands today as a driving force for the democratization of European youth mobility.
