The EVS project were enrich our centre's activity by using the added intercultural dimension - volunteers from other country in our team. This project were provide two benefits - volunteers were able to learn from our experience and methods, and the second one - we were able to learn their experience and techniques.
Volunteers had the opportunity to learn how works our union, both in local and international level, how it is to live in another country, and to understand the local culture. Volunteers gained self-confidence to carry out the project, when they get home, and to pass on the experience gained to others in their organizations. Young people know more about Europe and how to become an active citizen. Acting in the international organization, they feel more connected to the European and world level, and better understand the positive impact on society.
