The web has been created in 2012 in the framework of the project Silk Roads to EVS, and was done by the partnership of 8 European and Asian organizations working with volunteering. The main idea was to create the online space that can facilitate young people and youth organization the knowledge and tools to make the EVS project with global dimension.
During the past 4 years many things has changed. The programme is not the same anymore - the Youth in Action changed into ERASMUS+, the action dedicated only to EVS with other partner countries of the world has dissapeared, and new action called Capacity Building has been created, partnership has grown, and we started working on the new issues apart from EVS - Sustainable Development Goals or employability.
Today this webpage has been created to:
Publish the call for volunteers with global dimension - the partnership still has as a main goal to create the quality volunteering placements for young people; we don´t expect to have always a lot of vacancies, enought to satisfy the needs of all the interested young people, but we hope that we can create interesting offer for some young people
Share our knowledge and experience - this partnership has developed a lot of expertise in the area of volunteers management, and we hope that this page can be usefull for all the organization who are planning to undertake similar projects
Give the visibility to the partnerships projects - so we will be able to find all the materials, publications, approached etc.
Promote volunteering - we do believe that volunteering is one of the best ways for personal development and for getting the important experience that help on the labor market. Therefore we put so much effort to create the volunteering placements for young people, and share the information about the EVS and other volunteering possibilities.
