“Youth for Life, Partners for Education” emerged from our organization’s passion for investing in children and young adults. We promote personal initiative and we are committed to support all those who want to make a change!
We are strong believers in team work and a team spirit, and in EVS our mission is to support the volunteer to achieve the best of his/her potential through the activities carried out in the project. We are excited to contribute to the development of 8 key competences, for each volunteer, during this project:

- Mathematical competence and basic competences in science and technology

- Creativity and culture
- School after School: non-formal, educational activities for underprivileged children and youth
- Journalistic activities: up keeping a blog, Facebook page; elaborating a newsletter and brochure for the project.
- Inter-cultural Events: showcasing the volunteers’ cultures and traditions in a Romanian context
- Romanian language class
- Other activities of the organization & administrative tasks
The activities will take place in the the city of Arad. The volunteers will engage in activities that enhance active citizenship, intercultural exchange and dialogue, tolerance and anti-discrimination. The methods used will be specific to non-formal education (learning—by-doing, learning-by-playing etc.). The volunteers will be monitored and supported by a team comprised of a coordinator, activity facilitators, mentor, Romanian language teacher etc.
Working hours and days off: 5 hours / day, 5 days / week; 2 consecutive days off / week; 2 holiday days / month.

Local transport: we will facilitate local transport for each volunteer.
The volunteer we are searching for should:
- Be between 18—30 years old

- Support the Hosting Organization in reaching the objectives of the project
