The illustrations in the provided Wiki pages are for consultation purpose only and may not always reflect the latest implementation. 

This page explains how the beneficiary organisations and their partners can retrieve participants of the type Young Person from the European Solidarity Corps Portal and add accompanying persons to European Solidarity Corps Volunteering projects (ESC51-VTJ) with the purpose of associating them to activities.


Young persons' details changed in European Solidarity Corps can be updated in the project until the final beneficiary report is submitted. After the report is submitted, the project data is frozen. If any of the participants details are changed a message will be displayed when opening the project, informing you that new participant data has been received.

Should this update require changes in the project, the beneficiary needs to contact their National Agency. The National Agency can then take the necessary steps to open the project for updates and a new final beneficiary report must be submitted. 



  • In order to retrieve a young person's details from the European Solidarity Corps Portal, the relevant organisation must have made an offer to that participant via PASS (also known as Organisation Portal), and the participant must have accepted the offer.


1.  Click on "Participants"

In your project, click on Participants in the Content Menu to access the Participants list.

Here you will be able to view the following types of participants:

  • Young Persons that have accepted your offer, after you retrieve them from the European Solidarity Corps Portal.
  • Accompanying persons involved in the project, after you create them in the project.

At first, the list is empty. The total number of participants will be updated and displayed at the top of the list, as you add them.

2. Participants of type Young Person

2.1. Click on "Retrieve participant(s) from EYP"

Click on the Retrieve participant(s) from EYP button. 

The list is populated with all participants of the type Young Person who have accepted the offers of the beneficiary for the current project. All information is retrieved from European Solidarity Corps Portal and cannot be changed by the beneficiary. An information message will display, providing an overview of the updated and/or created participants.

The following details are available:

  • PRN (personal reference number), last name, first name, email and other personal details
  • Offer ID, Offer title and Status

The Status displayed in the list can be Accepted or Withdrawn. Participants with a withdrawn offer are only visible in the list if they were already added to a participation.

2.3. Update the young person list

Click on the Retrieve participant(s) from EYP button to update the entire list of young persons and their data.

If there are new participants to retrieve, they will be added to the list.

If your organisation has withdrawn its offer to a specific participant and no participations have been recorded for the participant, the participant is removed from the list.

The blue message at the bottom right corner of the screen will indicate the number of updated participants and the number of newly retrieved (i.e. created) participants. The Total number in this case only refers to young persons, even if there are participants of the type Accompanying Persons in your list. 

Take note

The participant data is updated automatically before the automatic participant report invitations are sent.

It is important to update the young persons' details before submitting the final beneficiary report, via the Retrieve participant(s) from EYP button.

2.4. Delete young person or withdraw offer

It is not possible to delete a young person from the project via the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform.

However, the organisation can withdraw its offer to a specific participant. If the participant is not involved in any other participations within the current project, the young person is removed from the participant list automatically, when the list is refreshed via the Retrieve participant(s) from EYP button. 

If the offer is withdrawn but the participation has already been recorded, the participation is automatically set to Draft and must be deleted before submitting the final report. Afterwards, the young person can be removed as described above.


3. Add participants of type "Accompanying Person" 

Click the Create button at the top of the list to open the Participant screen.

The Accompanying Person tab is selected by default and the Young Person tab is disabled. Provide the required information, then click Save

A PRN is not required for Accompanying Persons, as these persons do not need no register in the European Solidarity Corps Portal, nor are the organisations required to send offers to them.

A success message is displayed and the accompanying person record is now displayed in the Participants list.
