EU Programmes

I participated in an EU program -European Voluntary Service- on March 2010. The project was about a local internet television- koTV Kamnik in Slovenia. I have volunteered as a videographer/ video editor and took responsibilities of recording, editing short videos for internet television. The language of news broadcasting was in Slovene, so I put all my creation and creativity in a different language.

In the process of my first abroad experience, I organized another project independently- EVS Volunteer Speaks. Within the project, I shared volunteers’ impressions to potential young people on internet platforms and aimed to reflection EU opportunities to potential young people who especially fewer opportunities. One of the most important outcomes of the project: I recorded and edited videos in English, Slovene, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Serbian, Ukrainian, Russian, Hungarian and Turkish. On this basis, the project took a strong dimension. And I received a lot of positive feedback on my work. I had one of the most important experiences of my life.

European Voluntary Service is the Programme the European Union has set up for young people. It aims to inspire a sense of active European citizenship, solidarity and tolerance among young Europeans and to involve them in shaping the Union's future. It promotes mobility within and beyond the EU's borders, non-formal learning and intercultural dialogue.

The Youth Programme makes an important contribution to the acquisition of competences and is therefore a key instrument in providing young people with opportunities for non-formal and informal learning with a European dimension. It contributes to the fulfillment of the aims set out in the revised Lisbon Strategy and the European Youth Pact. Furthermore, it is an important instrument to support the EU Youth Strategy – Investing and Empowering.

Within the European Voluntary Service (EVS) programme, young people can spend up to 12 represents Erasmus+ Programme. (More technical information about this you can find here: )
