The volunteer should be motivated and autonomous, and should feel an interest for music and for organisational and relationship tasks, as well as for pedagogical and multi-cultural activities with young people from different countries aged between 15 and 25. The volunteer should have good social skills and no fear of communication with young people. Since we work with a multicultural target group, the volunteer should be open to learn and use new languages and to experience intense intercultural exchange. Given the European dimension of the youth activities involved in the EVS, a good knowledge of one of our common languages - French, German or English - is important, and basic knowledge of another of these languages (or others) would be of a certain advantage to the volunteers' activities.
Any volunteer with a profile corresponding to our project will be considered provided they are available throughout the proposed period of one year. If you wish to apply, please send an email to email@example.com with your resume and motivation letter.
