EVS: an opportunity to live and work abroad

This initiative wants to promote the youth mobility in general and the European Voluntary Service in particular. There is still a big lack of information regarding the possibilities European projects like EVS can offer to young people. The presentations aim to let youngster know about this possibilities through information and the personal experiences of the people who has participated in EVS or is still doing it.
