On arrival Training


"Excellent teacher is one who, teaching little, inspires the students a deep desire to learn."

Arturo Graf

One of the features of EVS is his peculiar way of guiding, supporting and motivating volunteers before embarking on their journey until his return, continuously through certain non-formal education seminars, which will assist the voluntary self-evaluate their experience, and also to the National Agency will provide information to assess the quality of the project and to prevent risks and resolve conflicts.

Focusing on arrival training, we could say that its:

Method and Content



Usually the language used is English, although not all volunteers arrive with a level that allows them to understand and take advantage of the training, the trainers will follow certain guidelines to ensure that participants understand all the information that they provide them. They will always speak in a slow and clear way, avoiding accents, building a support among volunteers and using tools such as body language or writing and pictures to help understanding the issue and organize group activities that encourage language immersion.

The training will focus on clarifying concepts about what is the Erasmus + program, and more specifically what is the EVS, emphasizing the rights and duties of each of the volunteers and providing methods and tools for each one to grow in a dynamic way. They will also clarifies to the volunteers the function of each one of the agents of the program: sending, host and coordinating organizations and the national agency, so if volunteers have some sort of problem with one of the agents know where to go.

Once these concepts are clear, and doubts resolved, the training focuses on detecting each of the handicap of volunteers in order to redirect their energy in a positive way to achieving their goals or reflect on what could be their goals if they do not have it yet.

The group dynamics and activities that are based each of the formations in EVS generate a friendly environment that enhances communication and mutual support, which aims to maximize motivation and minimize fears.

Finally but not least, will be devoted enough time to explain what it is and for serving the document Youthpass.

Is about take out of their "new home" the volunteers, transferring them to a space that encourages reflection and re-structuring of the volunteers plans, calming their insecurities and providing new energy and motivation, after the linguistic-cultural and social shock that will face over the next few months, reinforcing their independence and their desire to explore.
