ECCSR focuses on finding out what each young person offers (his/her abilities) and where he/she can imagine spending 11 or 12 months. During recruiting process ECCSR tries to talk individually with each candidate about his/her gifts, talents, skills and passions trying to find out the motivation and the best match with the hosting placement as possible. Recruitment process is done carefully with spending some time with each candidate for E+ volunteering. We want to find out his/her motivation, expectations. We try to have a personal contact with everyone, if needed one to one confidential conversation etc. Interview can give us more information about applicant’s level of the commitment. All organizations maintain the overall accessibility of E+ volunteering for all young people, without prejudice related to ethnic group, religion, sexual orientation or political opinion. When decision is done both, the volunteer and the hosting organization with the coordination of ECCSR, have to approve the final decision. Only after the both sides give a positive approval, the volunteer is accepted in the program and is consecutively prepared for his or her stay in the volunteering program in Slovakia.
