General Description

Training for project managers and mentors in European Voluntary Service (EVS) who would like to exchange experiences, get some information about the general and specific conditions of an EVS and want to learn more about working with volunteers.

Each project is unique and needs new discussions with participants, within the own organization and about the EU Program Erasmus+ Youth in Action. It doesn’t matter if you have many years of experience with the European Voluntary Service (EVS) or if you are a newcomer. You might have questions about the implementation and running of an EVS project and also how to support volunteers.

This german-speaking training will provide you with information about the general and specific conditions of an EVS and will help you to exchange experiences and to clarify roles and tasks. Furthermore it will help to improve the quality of your work.

The objectives are:
– to establish common understanding of EVS context and basic facts and principles
– to explore what “learning” during EVS means, who is learning and how does it work
– to discover ways and tools for planning, supporting and evaluating learning process
– to share ideas and good practices and to get inspired by diversity of approaches
– to prepare strategies of using the learning effects of EVS projects in future life and work situations of volunteers

Target group:

German speaking training for project managers and mentors in the European Voluntary Service.

EVS coordinators and mentors currently involved in the EVS project
beginners as well as people with some experiences in long-term EVS projects

Since the working language will be German, you will find a more detailed description in the attachment.
