Southbound volunteers - Hosting Norwegian EVS volunteers in Southern Europe

Partnership-building Activity

19-23 March 2012 | Malaga, Spain

The seminar will bring together EVS hosting organisations from Spain, Portugal, France and Italy and sending organisations from Norway. The aim is to build partnerships to foster the recruitment process and the cooperation in future EVS projects.
Do you represent an accredited EVS hosting or co-ordinating organisation in Spain, Portugal, Italy or France? Would you like to have a Norwegian volunteer to help out in your project? Are you interested in building partnerships with serious Norwegian sending organisations, who can help you recruit suitable volunteers for your project? Or do you represent an accredited Norwegian EVS sending organisation? Do you want to help Norwegian young people to find suitable hosting organisations in Spain, Portugal, Italy or France? Aim of the seminar: • Support hosting organisations in southern Europe find suitable Norwegian volunteers for their projects • Support Norwegian sending organisations and hosting organisations in southern Europe in building partnership and develop mutual trust and understanding • Support Norwegian EVS volunteers finding host projects in southern Europe • Facilitate the building of good partnerships between senders and hosts in EVS projects • Start concrete project planning in matched teams of sending and hosting organisations Target groups: • Norwegian accredited sending organisations who are willing and able to recruit and send volunteers to the hosting projects presented in the seminar. I.e. they should preferably have contact with – or be willing to openly recruit - volunteers with different backgrounds, needs, skills and competences, in order to match the needs of the hosting organisations • Accredited EVS hosting or co-ordinating organisations from Spain, Portugal, Italy or France who are willing and able to host Norwegian volunteers in their projects. If they are willing to host volunteers with fewer possibilities, this will be considered positive (but not necessary)
