European Voluntary Service

The aim of the European Voluntary Service (EVS) is to develop solidarity and promote active citizenship and mutual understanding among young people.

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 weeks 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 accomodation, food, insurance and pocket money. The only thing you might have to pay is a small part of your travel costs.

How can you apply?

If you are between 17 and 30 you have two options:

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

2. Contact an organisation to discuss starting a project

Here you can find the EVS guide with a lot of useful information.
