Motivation and EVS experience

For the hosting organisation, receive young people through the European Voluntary Service provides real added value for European mobility.

With its host experience in 2007-2008, 2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012 the association “L’Europe en Corse” try, with the help of young volunteers, to develop a motivation for young people to see Europe as an opportunity for mobility.

We believe that by educating, informing and constantly repeating, young people become aware of the opportunity to live within the European Union, through which mobility projects, discovery and learning are possible.

We’ve done two girls from EVS, one in Germany in 2010, one in Italy in 2012. We are starting to see some interest in this program.

A large part of the activities and interventions, we realize with school, focuses on the awareness of European mobility. We insist on the promotion of Youth in Action Programme and the European Voluntary Service.
