The reason of EVS

The European Union supports non-formal education opportunities for young people through transnational voluntary service which directly and actively involves young people in activities designed to meet the needs of society in a wide range of fields.
The aim of the European Voluntary Service action is based on three fundamental principles:

  •  To provide a non-formal intercultural learning experience for young people, encouraging their social integration and active participation, improving their employability and giving them opportunities to show solidarity with other people.
  •  To support the development of local communities.
  •  To encourage the establishing of new partnerships and the exchange of experience and good practice between the partners.

The YOUTH program also recognizes the value of existing partnerships that have been built up between organizations over the years and have made crucial contributions to the success of voluntary activities.
