Volunteering in Romania is a group experience and an individual learning process in a group context.
You live and work in a group of 4 volunteers whom you have not met up to that moment and you’ll have to find ways to relate and get along. It’s a big adventure: not always easy or fun, but full of new discoveries and challenges.
The work you’ll be doing in our project requires that you are open-minded, social and fundamentally interested in other people, even if at surface is a value you have little in common with.
Also, you need to be able to take initiative both towards people and regarding your tasks and projects.
The work that you do inside Romania (here included also the programs run on different locations and in local partnership) it’s yours. Consider it your own and make it your own. Take care of it because it is your own.
Take responsibility for your part and take care that someone takes over from you when you cannot attend (motivated reasons).
The EVS is an opportunity for the volunteers to realize their own personal goals or projects if these are well communicated to the staff and are in line with the mission of the organization. We expect an active and responsible attitude from the volunteer, to be proactive and to take initiative.
A working week consists of 35 hours per week, Monday to Friday between different hours as in schedule. Weekends are days off. If some events/activities take place during the weekend, volunteers will get days off during the week.

Baia Mare is a municipality surrounded by mountains, in northwestern Romania and the capital of Maramureş County. The city is situated about 600 kilometres from Bucharest, the capital of Romania, 70 kilometres from the border with Hungary and 50 kilometres from the border with Ukraine. It has a population of 137.976.
The city is situated in the vicinity of the Gutâi and Igniș Mountains. Altitudes reach 1400 meters in some peaks. The area is famous for its outstanding landscapes, and the mountains are easily accessible from the city, famous routes being: Igniș (1307 m), Mogoșa (1246 m), Gutâi (1443 m), Creasta Cocosului (1450 m), Piatra Soimului (839 m), Plestioara (803 m), Dealul Bulat (683 m), Murgau (633 m), Dealul Crucii (500 m) etc.
Some of these mountains provide skiing slopes, most notably the one at Mogoșa, which is the most difficult slope in Northern Romania.The city is situated in the Baia Mare valley and is encircled on all sides by hills and mountains, which makes the climate in the city milder than the rest of the surrounding area. Proof of this is that the outskirts of Baia Mare are the only areas where you can find chestnut trees that usually need Mediterranean climate to grow. This is the northernmost reach of the chestnut tree. The summers are mild, cooler than in the rest of the country, but the temperature can go higher than 35 degress.
The city of Baia Mare is the most populous of Northern Romanian cities (Satu Mare, Suceava and Botoșani), with a population of approximately 149,735. It also has a high level of culture and education, being home to theatres, schools, museums and art galleries. Not far from the city there are a few very important natural reservations, among them Creasta Cocoșului, Cheile Tătărului, Lacul Albastru etc. Because of its privileged location in the Eastern Carpathian mountains it is considered one of the most picturesque cities in Romania.
Maramures county is considered by many to be the heart and soul of rural Romania. With its picturesque countryside of small villages, rolling hills, pastures, and meadows full of wildflowers, Maramures epitomizes all that the rural lifestyle encompasses.
Visitors to Maramures have a unique opportunity to step back in time and bear witness to simpler times and simpler lives.
Maramures is a small and unique location in the geographical heartland of Europe that has carefully and distinctively preserved the culture, tradition and lifestyle of a mediaeval peasant past. The region stands as a testament to traditional; to a romantic era of simplicity, pride and moral values that many of us can only now read about or hear from our grandparents.
Little has changed in the centuries gone by. Families remain in the same villages as their ancestors. Traditional skills and crafts are passed down from generation to generation.
Traditional hand-woven clothing continues to be practical. The church continues to be the soul of the village. Neighbours know one another and continue to lend a helping hand.
Life in Maramuresis like a mystery.
Visitors to Maramures drive through mountain passes and descend into the valleys of life where the mystery of rural traditions unfolds before the visitor as a living museum that is at once within reach yet simultaneously beyond the grasp of the whimsical traveller.
