EVS (European Voluntary Service) is an international volunteer program funded by the European Commission. It enables all young people legally resident in Europe, aged between 18 and 30 years, to carry out an international volunteer service in an organization or in a public body in Europe, Africa, Asia or South America for a period ranging from 2 to 12 months. It provides the reimbursement of travel expenses and complete coverage of the costs of food and accommodation for the international volunteer.
Thanks to the intercultural dimension and its non-formal approach, European Voluntary Service is a unique opportunity to come into contact with cultures different from your own and to acquire new skills and abilities useful for your personal and professional growth.
We ask a minimum of one month from volunteers with a daily commitment of 5 hours and weekends free.
Accommodation is camping with cooking facilities provided as well as compost toilets and showers.
We prefer that you come through the wwoof Ireland organisation. If you would like to apply please email here.
Form time to time we have various paid positions such as Employment schemes or temporary paid jobs; see “Work with us” page for a list of current vacancies.
