Since 2011 Youth Centre `Pulss` organises long-term EVS projects as Host and Sending Organisation. As volunteering is relevant part of youngster`s self-development process, we are interested to continue work in this field and also to become a Coordinating Organisation. Youth has an important role in our local community. We believe in youth work and voluntary work as a part of it. Voluntary work helps youngsters to improve and make wider their skills, attitudes and self-confidence, and EVS projects help to make long-term cooperation between Youth Organisations as well (for example, by making other international projects).
