ON ARRIVAL training for EVS Volunteers

The training activity took place
in Warszawa
organised by Polish National Agency of Erasmus+ Programme

Aims & objectives

The main objective of the on-arrival training was to introduce the volunteers to Poland, preparing them for the service period and the EVS experience. On-arrival training helped the volunteers adapt to cultural and personal challenges. It allowed volunteers to get to know each other and to build a network. Volunteers also received guidance on conflict prevention and crisis management.

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

20 EVS volunteers from different countries working in Polish hosting organisations.

Training methods used & main activities

Used methods were based on the idea of non-formal learning: group work, open space, individual/pair reflection, discussions, role plays, team work, interactive games.

Outcomes of the activity

Participants left the training with new ideas for their projects, new contacts, more energy and plans for the future.
