“EVS Turn ON” is a long term project implemented by ECOS CRL through Erasmus +/Youth in Action. The project consists of a training course taking place in Faro from the 19th to the 26th of June and a seminar that will take place from the 6th to the 12th of October in Silves, Portugal. The aim of the project is to celebrate the existence of EVS for more than 20 years by this training course that will focus on the key-words of EVS, that being “learning”, and “magic”! Accordingly, our training course focuses on developing the necessary competencies of EVS support staff and volunteers, in order to address the learning dimension of all actors involved in a way that can be more fruitful, more meaningful, and more conscious. The second stage of the project, involves a seminar where we would like to gather “magical stories” of EVS, where one can see the inspiration, the change, the transformation, the awakening of people involved in EVS projects from different angles, those being the EVS volunteers, organisations’ staff, local communities and more.
