Event Description

During European Youth Week, 2015 EDIC Donegal and Gaeltacht together with the Donegal Youth Service is hosting presentations across Donegal on the Euro0pean Voluntary Service. presentations will be given by young volunteers presently working with Donegal Youth Service in Letterkenny Co Donegal.

This presentation in EDIC Gaoth Dobhair is the second of 5 throughout Donegal.

The EVS provides opportunities for young people between 17 and 30 to travel to other EU member states and beyond to work on a voluntary basis with other EU communities. This provides valuable experience in projects and placements throughout Europe. Most young people return with a clearer sense of purpose and direction and renewed energy & motivation.
