What is EVS?

evs-walesEVS stands for European Voluntary Service. This is a scheme funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission to give young people in Europe the chance to volunteer abroad. It enables young people aged 17 to 30 years to live up to 12 months in another country while working in a non-profit organisation. EVS aims to improve young people’s skills whilst encountering different cultures, meeting people from across the world and learning a new language.

UNA Exchange is an approved coordinating organisation for European Voluntary Service (EVS) in Wales and the wider UK. We work in partnership with third sector organisations in Wales to enable young volunteers from the EU and participating partner countries to have an incredible experience, living and working in Wales for up to 12 months.

 

Applying for EVS in Wales with UNA Exchange

evs-volunteers-walesDemand for places on our projects is very high and placements are often organised well in advance. To stand the best chance of finding a place you should keep an eye on our Facebook page, this web page and the Erasmus+ EVS Database.

If you are interested in a project then be sure to make your application the best ever, address all the points in detail using real examples from your own work, study, leisure and volunteering activities.

If you see a project you are interested in then please contact a coordinating organisation in your home country who will support you in submitting your application. Do not apply to us directly as we will not be able to respond due to the volume of applications.

We look forward to welcoming you in Wales!
