Are you interested?

An EVS volunteer should be at the age of 18 to 30 and willing to participate in an 11 months long project.

When applying, it would be good to have an interest in youth work, working with the youngsters and media. Although, it is not an expectancy to have these skills and knowledge. It is important to have the desire of utilising your knowledge and skills and passing them on the local youngsters.

We are expecting that our volunteer is an open communicator and a friendly person, who is ready to be flexible about his/her working hours and assignments. The work management in youth centre is very varied – you have to be mobile beacuse of collaboration meetings and trainings all over the country and flexible because of the working hours of the centre (in addition to working on weekdays it is common to have to work on weekends as well).

Cultural differences are not decisive, they are rather beneficial in terms of global diversity – we accept everyone who is suitable for youth work.

We will go through and discuss every single application as a team and will make Skype calls.

How to apply?
