Enriching Volunteer Services
Start date: Aug 1, 2014, End date: Jun 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Staff of ADP-Zid consist of 7 full time employees and 2-4 EVS volunteers that are working/assisting on different programmes. All of them are equal according to learning opportunity that are offered to them. Also they are all welcome to shere ideas and suggestion, comments and opinions that will improve quality of organization’s work. On the begining of engagement, EVS volunteers will be in position to learn a lot and pass task - oriented trainings that will help them to fullfill their future task. After that period volunteers will be involved in the work of organization as a assistents and supervisor will always be responsible for their further professional development and to organize their work. Related to EVS Charter and working values of ADP-Zid, EVS volunteers are never going to be in position to take overall responsibility of task results, even if host organization will promote responible aproche to the given task in sens to contribute to volunteers’ employability and building of professional competences. In different stage of the project volunteer will change their role what will depend of their will and interest. If EVS volunteers express desire to learn more and get more practical knowledge their role could change but also in that situation supervisor is responsible for results. Through programs on community development, ADP-Zid could offer to EVS volunteers involovment on different services that are establish in the organization. In this EI are presented all possible activities that ADP-Zid could offer to EVS volunteers, but each volunteers before his/her decision to come in our organization will receive concrete list of activities which is based on this one. Because of different needs of volunteers and host organization, and bigger structure of some services it’s not possible that EVS volunteers participate on every activities that are presented here what is the main reason why EVS coordinator is going to prepare concreat list of activities. Every EVS is splited in 3 phases: induction, orientation (preparation phase), full activity phase with personal project and final reflection on learning process (evaluation phase).
