New European Voluntary Service opportunities in Switzerland (from May 2022)!

24th March 2022

We are looking for 2 volunteers from abroad (Europe and partner countries*) between 18-30 years old – for stays of 5 to 12 months.

The European Voluntary Service (EVS) programme was created in order to promote solidarity and a sense of community among younger people within Europe (and other partner Countries). With this project, participants get to volunteer for many different organisations with various cultural and social aims. This is a great opportunity to learn new skills and develop their competences, it is not merely an internship experience, as it allows space for self-discovery and the development of personal projects. 

EVS is financed by Movetia, the Swiss national Agency and therefore completely free for all participants. It includes travel expenses, food and accomodation, a language course and pocket money.
