Who can volunteer?
Youngsters aged between 18 and 30 years old can participate in an EVS project.

The youngsters with fewer opportunities like educational, social, cultural, economical, disabilities or geographical difficulties may participate in the programme from the age of 16 years old. The only requirements are: to have some minimum skills of English to facilitate the communication and to be able to make themselves understood; to be legal residents in one of the EU Member States or in states participating in the Youth in Action programme.

The sum for the pocket money is established for each EU country or country participating in the programme.
