European Voluntary Service

Are you between 18 and 30 and willing to spend from 2 month to 12 months abroad as an EVS volunteer?

 

How does it work?

 

An EVS  project is a partnership between two or more promoting organisations. These organisations are responsible for recruiting volunteers for their project. Volunteers participate in EVS through a Sending Organisation in the country where they live and a Receiving Organisation that receives and hosts them during their period of service.

 

Projects last from 2 month to 12 months, and as a volunteer you can work in a wide range of fields, such as culture, youth, sports, children, cultural heritage, arts, animal welfare, environment and development cooperation. At the end of your EVS period, you will receive a certificate confirming your participation and describing your project – the Youthpass.

 

You will receive free accommodation, food, insurance and pocket money. The only thing you might have to pay is a small part of your travel costs.

 

For further information, or if your organisation would like to host a volunteer, please contact Alice Melsheimer by phone or e-mail.
