Aims & objectives

The evaluation of achievements, exchange of ideas and good practices, working on learning to learn and presenting the Youthpass and the systematic planning of future steps towards further development of the EVS projects and the volunteer experience in general.

1) To empower the “informal” volunteers’ network – that is mainly rooted in the “on arrival seminars” – through coexistence, interaction and exchange of experiences so that cooperation between them is increased.
2) To offer a vital space for personal and group reflection with regards to the participants as volunteers and as “persons” so that they can accommodate their experience so far, realize their current situation and project themselves in the future.
3) To integrally evaluate participants’ EVS projects towards prevention and resolution (where needed) of conflicts or even crises.
4) To provide participants with space for planning of futures steps and moreover to share and process information related to the triptych Youth – European Union – Mobility accenting this way the meaningfulness of EVS in a person’s further development.
5) To support participants in further practicing the use of Greek language.
