参加 VS 参与

参加 is followed by an organization, political party, army, competition activity or event. It's more official, with a clear purpose.
E.g. 参加中国共产党,参加军队,参加社团,参加活动,参加比赛

参与 is to be engaged in discussing, planning or solving of something. When you say 参与, you join a larger group of people and you are just a small part of it playing a facilitating role.

Sometimes they are interchangeable.
