coordinating evs projects
If I had the chance to do something like that again, I won’t hesitate.”
- Ida, ex-volunteer in Vienna, Austria
Globala Kronoberg has been part of the EVS (European Voluntary Service) as a receiving, sending and coordinating organisation since 2007. In the frame of Erasmus+ program (formerly called Youth in Action) we work together with other projects at Nätverket SIP - (like På ingång) as well as with other local associations (Palladium, Funkibator, House of Free Speech) and municipalities (Växjö, Alvesta and Ljungby) in the region of Kronoberg. Due to these partnerships we’re able to provide our long-/short-term hosted EVS volunteers a varied environment, where they can choose a project that fits them the best, whether in culture, enhance social inclusion, disability, international cooperation and relations or integration and migration.
Our role as a coordinating organisation includes helping the host organisations with all the administration work within an EVS project (from the accreditation to the final evaluation of the project) as well as providing mentorship and assistance to the supervisors, place for meetings and exchange of experiences, etc. We are also responsible for the practical arrangements with the volunteers (accommodation, pocket money, food money, travel arrangements, insurance and medical assistance) and we support the volunteers with their social life and their learning process.
Here you can watch a video from Mohammad, one of our EVS volunteers, where he is talking about his work at Globala Kronoberg and his stay in Sweden.
