EVS Mid Term

The training activity took place
in Sofia
organised by National Agency
05-08 July 2016

Aims & objectives

The mid-term evaluation allows volunteers to assess their experience so far and to reflect
on the activities, role and support of the Host Organisation and on their own contribution.
The mid-term evaluation is essential for risk prevention and crisis management and it
thus facilitates conflict resolution — if necessary! In addition, volunteers share positive
experiences and increase their motivation.
The evaluation provides the opportunity to learn from everybody’s ‘EVS story’ and
enables the volunteers to plan developments and/or further improvements in their
service and to think about what they will do in the longer term, once their period of
service is over. The evaluation should also raise awareness of the personal learning
process, linking it to the key competences of the Youthpass. Overall, the mid-term evaluation should offer a relaxed and informal atmosphere so the volunteers feel comfortable sharing experiences and saying whatever is important for them.

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

20 volunteers participated in the training and they were from 12 different countries

Energisers, Diversity Icebreaker, Making Banners, Scaling, Presentations, Games and Roleplays, Coaching tools

Outcomes of the activity

Mid-term evaluations will vary according to national conditions, realities and training
practices. Nevertheless, by the end of the evaluation, each volunteer should have personally assessed the project so far and reflected on the scope of his/her activities;
shared personal experiences (learning new skills and competences, being part of community life, living within a different culture, using the language); identified problems, difficulties, conflicts faced or about to be faced and
consequently received satisfying support and clues on the ‘next steps’ to solve these problems; worked on developing / improving the activities he/she is involved in; received information and guidance on opportunities he/she could be involved in after the period of service; understood how to draft the Youthpass and received information about the Final Report to be produced.
