Testimony of Virginie – 2 months EVS in Portugal, Peniche (01.09.2017 to 31.10.2017)
The European Voluntary Service is open to all young people between 18 and 30 years who wish to have an experience abroad. It allows any young European to engage in a project from one to twelve months, within a non-profit organization.
EVS is funded by the European Commission to enable young people to develop their skills but also to discover a new country, to open up to others and to different European cultures.
The Erasmus + program supports volunteers: transportation, accommodation and food are carried out. Volunteers are also offered tutoring and language support. A recognition of the skills acquired throughout volunteering is formalized through Youth pass.
I-PEICC accompanies the young people of Occitania in their search for a mobility project and in the preparation of their departure.
On the first Tuesday of each month, i-PEICC organizes information meetings on EVS
