What do you need?

A project 
• that last between 2 and 12 months 
• and that takes place within an organisation abroad (a "host organisation") 
You can find a database of organisations that are entitled to host and send volunteers in the EVS-database
An EVS project can focus on a variety of themes and areas of intervention, such as culture, youth, sports, social care, cultural heritage, arts, civil protection, environment, development cooperation, etc. 
High-risk interventions in immediate post-crisis situations (e.g. humanitarian aid, immediate disaster relief, etc.) are excluded. 
Project structure
An EVS project is the framework: 
• for your EVS activity (= your stay abroad), 
• together with your preparation (before you take the bus or plane), 
• and - when you're back - your evaluation and follow-up moment back at home. 
The EVS activity abroad should have a minimum duration of 2 months and a maximum overall duration of 12 months (excluding preparation and evaluation). 
In the case of inclusion activities with young volunteers with fewer opportunities or for group EVS activities, if duly justified, a minimum duration of two weeks is allowed. 
Partners in EVS 
Each EVS project and activity is based on a partnership including the following project 
• one or more volunteers; 
• one or more sending organisations; 
• one or more host organisations; 
• one coordinating organisation (that will apply for funding from the Erasmus+ programme). It can be (but does not have to be) one of the sending organisations or one of the host organisations. Most of the times, the hosting organisation is the coordinating organisation. 
Projects are planned, implemented and followed up jointly in a spirit of partnership between these partners.
