CVS-Bulgaria (Youth NGO)

CVS-Bulgaria is a non-governmental organisation that has been working in the field of international volunteer exchange since 1998 and was officially registered in 2002 as an organisation working in public benefit. CVS-Bulgaria is a branch of the international peace and volunteer-exchange network of Service Civil International (SCI - www.sciint.org) and a full member of South Eastern European Youth Network (SEEYN - www.seeyn.org).

CVS-Bulgaria aims to promote the values of volunteer work through organising variety of voluntary activities; to motivate young people to be active and participate in volunteer actions - thus taking part in the development of the civil society; to promote and support intercultural understanding and solidarity, social justice and environment preservation.

Main activities of CVS-Bulgaria are: organising short- and long-term volunteer projects, youth exchanges, trainings, hosting and sending volunteers for projects in public benefit in Bulgaria, Europe and the world, as well as working in partnership with other NGOs on local and international level to promote volunteering as a tool for active citizenship.

Since 2003 CVS-Bulgaria has been sending, hosting and coordinating EVS volunteers. For those 14 years we have been working with more than 100 longterm and short-term EVS volunteers.

In 2015 CVS-Bulgaria developed and successfully implemented a project “EVS from A to Z” which main goal was to build and extend the capacity of the organizations in planning, implementing and evaluating EVS projects of high quality. The project “Mentoring from A to Z” is developed based on the positive experience of our previous project and the need of the organizations in providing an efficient support to the EVS volunteers during their learning and service journeys.
