What is EVS?
European Voluntary Service is an Erasmus+ program activity that offers a chance to all young people aged 17 to 30 to volunteer in a foreign country within or outside the EU. In this way, it seeks to develop solidarity, mutual understanding and tolerance among young people, thus contributing to reinforce social cohesion in the European Union and promote young people’s active citizenship. European Voluntary Service is a unique opportunity to experience life abroad, learn and gain experience in various areas. It is a learning service, therefore the volunteers not only benefit the local communities but can develop new skills and improve their personal, education and professional development.
How does it work?
Long-term EVS usually takes 2 up to 12 months, short-term EVS from 2 weeks to 2 months. People interested in EVS choose the organisation individually, based on their interests. The projects includes wide range of topics, such as cultural, social or ecological activities, work with youth, sports, cultural heritage, arts and many more.
How much does it cost?
EVS is completely free of charge for the volunteers. All expenses for the food, accommodation, insurance, travel costs and visa are covered. You also receive a pocket money and are provided with a language course of the language in the hosting country.
