The TC “EVS-Bigger, Better, Brighter” aims to enhance the quality of EVS projects through development of essential competences of support persons. It also provides up-to-date information to its participants on the opportunities given by the Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme. The training course is designed for those who are directly involved in the work around the EVS volunteer (e.g. mentors and task-related support persons) on the hosting, sending and coordinating side. The support people play a crucial role in providing conditions for a quality voluntary service and creating opportunities for volunteer’s learning in EVS. The project is also an opportunity for reaching out to new partners for future cooperation, for exchanging EVS volunteers and spread our message around the European public sphere.
During the training course we will favor a common ground among participants to understand the concept of EVS. We will reflect on its values, reasons, interests and needs of all actors involved. We will support the process of understanding EVS as “learning service”, linked with the concept of European citizenship. The learning dimension of EVS service: EVS is very much about learning – non-formal and informal. It is about acquiring new life experiences, but also gaining new competences – getting new knowledge, improving skills and developing attitudes.
We will go through the different stages of the learning process and you will get acquainted with the concept of Key Competences and Youthpass.
