European Voluntary Service (EVS) is a 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 within the Youth in Action Programme and aims to improve young people’ skills. The European Union support includes:
- full coverage of the costs of board and lodging of the volunteer;
- 90% refund of travel expenses;
- comprehensive health insurance for the entire period of volunteering abroad;
- Language training in the country of destination.
There are other international mobility programmes to volunteer abroad for free, we would suggest you to take a look at Projects abroad, that allow you to travel, learn about other cultures and have unforgettable experiences.
