E.V.S. Project

An E. V. S project allows a young person to be a volunteer in another country for a specified period, normally between 6 and 12 months. Voluntary service activities can take place, for example, in the field of the environment, arts and culture, activities with children, young people or the elderly, heritage, or sports and leisure.

Volunteers will participate in activities that comply with the following general principles. Activities must:

bullettake place in a country other than where the volunteer lives,
bulletbe non-profit-making and unpaid,
bulletbring an added value to the local community,
bulletnot involve job substitution,
bulletlast for a limited period (maximum 12 months).
The vast majority of voluntary service projects are on a one-to-one basis, i.e. a volunteer goes from one country to another. These projects involving two countries are dealt with directly by the National Agencies in the Program countries (see section B.2).

Who are the partners in an E. V. S project?
An E. V. S project involves a partnership between three actors: 

bulleta volunteer,

One of the countries involved in an E. V. S project must be an E. U Member State.
