    Hi there, With the European Voluntary Service, you can't apply for funding  yourself, so you'll need to join an accredited sending or host organisation, and one of them will apply to Erasmus+ for funding on your behalf. As a general rule, organisations working with young people are generally looking for young people 17 or over, as working abroad can be a big step out of the comfort zone of many people. I hope this was helpful!
