European Voluntary Service

WoMentor is accredited as a sending, hosting and coordinating organization for European Voluntary Service (EVS)

The Youth in Action programme offers young Europeans the chance to make a real difference to the world and to their own lives - through the European Voluntary Service.

The European Voluntary Service (EVS) provides young people with the unique chance to express their personal commitment through unpaid and full-time voluntary activities in a foreign country within or outside the EU. In this way, it seeks to develop solidarity, mutual understanding and tolerance among young people, thus contributing to reinforcing social cohesion in the European Union and to promoting young people's active citizenship. Volunteers can benefit from specific training throughout the activity and agree on their expected learning outcomes, processes and methods in advance. Their learning experience is formally recognised through Youthpass

        Why come to Graz?

Graz is the country's second largest city, with a population of almost 300,000.The city houses 6 universities, which between them play host to more than 40,000 students. In 1999 it was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site  and in 2003, Graz was the EuropeanCapital of Culture .  In 2008 was named a Cityof Culinary Delights and in March 2011 was made a UNESCOCity of Design .
It is located in Styria, approximately 200km southwest of Vienna, close to the border of Slovenia. Its location serves as a bridge between the east and the west and offers numerous opportunities to travel to neighboring countries, such as Italy, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia and so on. The name Graz is Slavic and means small castle or fortification. The oldest settlement dates back to the year 800. It is a city with many tales to tell. Rich in history and packing quite a punch culturally for a city of its size, it has something to please everybody.
