EVS (European Voluntary Service) is an international volunteer program funded by the European Commission. It enables all young people legally resident in Europe, aged between 18 and 30 years, to carry out an international volunteer service in an organization or in a public body in Europe, Africa, Asia or South America for a period ranging from 2 to 12 months. Thanks to the intercultural dimension and its non-formal approach, European Voluntary Service is a unique opportunity to come into contact with cultures different from your own and to acquire new skills and abilities useful for your personal and professional growth. European Voluntary Service is based on the following principles: – increasing your own skills through the practical experience of volunteering abroad; – encouraging the learning of another language; – developing the ability to interact with persons of different language and culture; – spreading tolerance among young people of the European Union; – promoting active citizenship; – supporting the development of local communities. European voluntary service is practically Free of Charge. Travel expenses, accommodation, food, local transportation, health insurance, language lessons and monthly allowance are covered and financed by the European Commission
