European Voluntary Service: We got accredited by the European Commission

We are happy to announce that AEGEE-Dresden e.V. has been accredited as European Voluntary Service (EVS) host and EVS sending organization by the European Commission a few days ago. By this we successfully joined a group of only 5.000 other accredited organizations all over Europe.

EVS has had a major impact on the lives of many thousands of young people over the past 20 years. More than 100.000 young people between 17 and 30 took part in this EU programme, developing skills and competences by contributing to the work of an organisation. EVS is funded by the Erasmus+-Programme of the European Union.

Our accreditation lasts till the end of the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme in 2020 and empowers us to e.g. host EVS volunteers. During their stay in Dresden of up to twelve months the volunteers can learn lots of skills and improve themselves while working on AEGEE.

The online magazine AEGEE Golden Times published an interview with Jan Philipp Rauprich, former president of AEGEE-Dresden, about the reasons for applying, the long application process to become EVS-accredited, and the plans and ideas we have for the first volunteer.

Happy International Volunteer Day!

Happy International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development to all those people spending their time to make a better world with passion and a smile on!
Thank you for your work!

The International Volunteer Day was introduced by the United Nations in 1985 and is also held offically in Germany every year. It offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make their contributions visible – at local, national and international levels.

As AEGEE-Dresden e.V. is a non-profit association relying solely on the pure voluntary work of our members, we are very proud to have a special day only for them. Once again, thank you and all other voluneers world-wide for all your work!
