We will focus on the different geographic origin of volunteers involved to develop solidarity and promote active citizenship and mutual understanding among the volunteers themselves and also in the local community.The volunteer doesn’t have to be involved in all these activities(unless they wish so), it will depend of the motivation of the volunteer and the need of volunteers in each activity along the project.We believe the role of the EVS volunteer in ROs is an active one.they are directly involved in planned activities in its different stages(preparation,development,monitoring and implementation). Also, a strong accent is being put on stimulating the EVS volunteers’ own initiatives and on the importance of personalizing their actions.
The activities are open for all profiles of volunteers. There are not any specific requirements regarding volunteers’ profile set by the both Receiving Organizations. They only would like to have open minded volunteers, ready to work in the frame of our activities, with particular attitude towards social activities and work in office, with basic knowledge of English; aware of the kind of project thery are going to attend and of the local community, social environment and town in which they will live, with a true interest in the other cultures and good motivations on the contests of the project, and some commitment, professionalism, in order to make more efficient the experience of volunteering.As well, we ask a certain amount of flexibility, adaptability and patience especially in the first period of the project.
