LJUBLJANA – EUSA is happy to announce that it has been accredited by the European Commission's Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) for the period of three years as a hosting, sending and coordinating organisation for the European Voluntary Service (EVS) programme.
EUSA therefore officially became an organisation involved in the European Commission's Youth in Action programme. EVS is the Action 2 of the programme, helping young people from Europe and programme countries to develop their sense of solidarity by participating abroad in non-profit, unpaid voluntary activities.
The EVS position in EUSA is open to individuals between 18 and 30, for a period ranging from 9 to 12 months; we have capabilities to host up to two international volunteers at the same time. Please see www.eusa.eu/en/projects/evs for details.
The EVS programme complements the other volunteer opportunity in the organisation - EUSA Volunteer Programme, where during the EUSA sports events the students of European universities interested in sports and in organizing sport events are given a chance to experience the events from a different perspective, learning about the values of sport, and gaining valuable work experience through volunteering.
