“EVS for All” Contact Making Seminar


The project was developed over 9 months as a result of promoting EVS with Youth Services (centres) in Ireland and Slovenia. It became clear that many Youth Services are interested in sending young people with fewer opportunities on short term EVS. But unfortunately they do not have partners and find it difficult to know how to proceed.


The CMS was aimed at Youth Services (centres) who wish to build partnerships with the view to sending young people with fewer opportunities abroad on their EVS. In order to send EVS volunteers with fewer opportunities organisations need to have a trusted network of organisations that are in the position of supporting volunteers with extra needs. 

UntitledWe explored how the other actions of YiA can support sending volunteers, and find a way to strategically incorporate YiA in the day to day work of the organisations.

Each organisation participated with one youth worker and one young person, thus involving young people from an early stage. We hoped that the young participants would become active in promoting EVS in their own organisation, that they would be supported to find themselves a suitable EVS placement and that their active participation in general will be stimulated.

Note: most of the young people participating in this project found themselves an EVS placement!
