Are you between 18 and 30 and willing to spend from 2 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 promoters are responsible for recruiting volunteers for their project.


Volunteers participate in EVS through a Sending Organisation in the country where they live and a Host Organisation that receives and hosts them during their period of service.


Projects last from 2 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 (maximum 10%) of your travel costs.


How can you apply?

If you are between 18 and 30 (or at least 16 if you are from a disadvantaged background), you have two options:


1. Contact an organisation  that is recruiting volunteers for a granted project OR


2. Contact an organisation to discuss starting a project


To contact an organisation, consult the database of accredited organisations.


You can check the list of eligible countries in the Programme Guide.
