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 swider 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.
