Dear partners in the field of volunteering, we would like to invite you on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth for the European Partner Finding Seminar “Volunteering and voluntary services in Europe – creating more opportunities for cross-border volunteering for young people”. Target group are volunteering organisations which would like to start or to increase the hosting/sending of volunteers across the border. This does not at the first place refer to European Voluntary Service (EVS), but rather to national services which are open to volunteers from other EU countries or to any other volunteer scheme or activity which could be opened or is open for volunteers from other countries. See more details in the attached programme.
Due to financial restrictions we would like to address the invitation to a number of selected organisations from Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Russian Federation, Spain and United Kingdom.
