European Voluntary Service (EVS)
The European Voluntary Service is an opportunity to live a solidarity experience and to gain skills which will add value to your profile and facilitate your professional inclusion. You will commit yourself to a full-time activity in a social, sportive, cultural or environmental field. As volunteer, you will help a non-profit organisation to achieve its goal. This programme is based on a collaboration between a volunteer, a sending organisation and a hosting organisation.
- Short-term EVS: between 2 weeks and 2 months (for young people with less opportunities)
- Long-term EVS: between 6 and 12 months (for all young people)
Most of the projects take place in the "Programme countries"
Some of the projects take place in the "Partner countries"
