The European Voluntary Service (EVS) offers you the opportunity to spend 2-12 months abroad working as a volunteer in a non-profit or in a state organization. You can participate if you are 17-30 years old, if you have a permanent residence in the Czech Republic or in a partnership country (countries of EU, Norway, Iceland, countries of south-eastern Europe) and if you are interested in environmental protection, working with youth, social integration, art, culture and cultural heritage, leisure time activities, sports and others. The European Voluntary Service is funded by the grant program EU Youth in Action – Erasmus+.
INEX-SDA has been a sending, hosting and coordinating organization of the European Voluntary Service since 2001. Because of our experience we have successfully sent more than 150 volunteers abroad and hosted more than 20 volunteers.

You should be able to communicate in basic level of English or in the language of the hosting country. EVS projects offer the possibility to learn new things and to develope new skills.

If your application is accepted, your project can start 3 months after the closing date. For example: if we submit the application prior to 26. 4., you can start working on your project on 1. 8.
INEX-SDA will invite you to an interesting pre-departure training based on an informal educational method (no lessons, powerpoints etc.), you can discuss the project with other volunteers and with people who have already participated in an EVS project. Our instructors are former volunteers, therefore you will get to know everything that you need to know before your departure.
