European Voluntary Service (EVS) is a short or long-term volunteer experience abroad. It enables young people aged 18 to 30 years to live up to 12 months in another country providing their service in a non-profit organization. The European Voluntary Service is funded by the European Commission under Erasmus+ and aims to improve young people’s skills.

The European Union support includes:
– full coverage of the costs of board and lodging of the volunteer;
– cost of travel;
– comprehensive health insurance for the entire period of volunteering abroad;
– Language training in the country of destination.
