Aims & objectives

• Evaluate the overall EVS experience so far regarding the experience on different levels (organisation, local community, project activities, personal involvement, motivation)

• Strengthen the 'informal' network of EVS volunteers -which come mainly from the 'on arrival training’- hosted in different regions of Greece

• Give the volunteers an opportunity and space to share thoughts, good practices and self-reflect on their experiences gained so far

• Prevent and resolve problems and/or manage conflicts (where required)

• Focus on the learning outcomes of EVS projects and use YouthPass as a tool for
acknowledgement of their non-formal learning of volunteers and their key competences

• Get informed about further European youth programmes and opportunities and design possible future steps

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

There were 47 EVS participants currently volunteering in Greece who come from 20 different countries.

Training methods used & main activities

Team building activities, interactive and creative presentations of their EVS projects, group and pair work, plenary discussions, EVS café, EVS evaluation tools, outdoor activities, Self – assessment & Youthpass

Outcomes of the activity

Volunteers had the chance to
• meet, exchange views and reflect on their project and personal learning

• get wider knowledge of programmes and opportunities for future opportunities

• have deeper understanding of the self-assessment and learning process that leads to a Youthpass certificate

• experience techniques for problem solving, communication and conflict management

• share best practices and find common ground for possible joint future actions
