European Voluntary Service celebrates 20 years!

The European Voluntary Service (EVS) celebrates its 20th anniversary!


The European Voluntary Service gives young people the opportunity to volunteer abroad, contributing with their efforts to a cause they believe in – be it solidarity with refugees and migrants, work on environmental issues, activities for children or the elderly, support for non-governmental organizations, work for cultural events or a number of other topics. Anyone between 17 and 30 years old can join and every volunteer receives support to cover travel and living costs, as well as pocket money and insurance.

As an organization you can get financial support to run a project involving an international volunteer in your activities. EVS volunteers can contribute with their enthusiasm, efforts and background to the work you are doing and add a truly inspiring international dimension to your organization’s environment.
