EVS on-arrival

The training activity took place
in Kirkevik, Oslo, Norway
organised by Juvente / Norwegian NA

Aims & objectives

The aim of the training is to provide the new EVS volunteers information on their rights and responsibilites, the Erasmus+ programme and the big picture of EVS. The volunteers are also given a chance to learn about their host country, their role in their projects and the project in general.

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

12 volunteers from different European countries.

Training methods used & main activities

I was managing some sessions on storytelling as a method for intercultural learning and looking at the different stakeholders in the EVS projects.

Outcomes of the activity

We managed as a team to create a close-knit group to continue with their peer-support network even after the training. The volunteers learned about their rights and responsibilities and learnt how to implement their own knowledge in their projects.

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

My main responsibility was the food logistics. But I was also part of the educational staff doing sessions on volunteering and storytelling.

I worked on this training for 7 days as a full time trainer.
