This project type will support experienced EVS coordinating organisations in developing projects that generate systemic impact on the local, regional, national and/or European level. A Strategic EVS Project will make a strategic use of EVS activities in addressing an identified challenge in line with priorities under the Erasmus+ Programme. In complementarity to the EVS activities, the project could build connections with Associated Partners that contribute to the quality implementation and strengthen the ability of the project to meet the strategic aims. Raising awareness of the value of volunteering for young people and for communities as well as strengthening the recognition of the skills and competences gained are also important elements of a Strategic EVS Project.

 

What is a Strategic EVS Project?

Supported projects will consist of the following stages:

  • Preparation (including practical arrangements, selection of participants, linguistic/intercultural/task-related preparation of participants before departure);
  • Implementation of the European Voluntary Service activities and complementary activities;
  • Follow-up (including the evaluation of the EVS activities, the formal recognition -where applicable -of the learning outcomes of participants during the activities, as well as the dissemination and use of the project's outcomes to strengthen the strategic use of volunteering in the organisation and among the partners).

 

Which activities are supported under this action?

European Voluntary Service

A Strategic EVS project will implement standard EVS activities.

These activities allow young people aged 17-30 to express their personal commitment through unpaid and full-time voluntary service for up to 12 months in another country within or outside the European Union. Young people with fewer opportunities can receive additional support to enable their participation and would also be allowed to go on EVS for a shorter duration of time (from 2 weeks and up). Young volunteers are given the opportunity to contribute to the daily work of organisations dealing with youth information and policies, young people's personal and socio-educational development, civic engagement, social care, inclusion of disadvantaged, non-formal education programmes, ICTs and media literacy, culture and creativity, development cooperation, etc.

Thanks to the Partnership between Erasmus+ and LIFE Programmes, young volunteers will have further opportunities to  contribute to the protection of the environment and climate by engaging in activities such as monitoring species and habitats, participation in surveys and surveillance, reforestation and tree care, public awareness initiatives, wildfire prevention, identification and eradication of invasive alien species, ecological restoration, trail construction and environmental clean-up (e.g. marine litter).

The project should involve several volunteers for solid systemic impact. The volunteers can do their voluntary service either individually or in group.

The applicant organisation is responsible (possibly through the other participating organisations) for:

  • arranging subsistence, lodging and local transports of volunteers;
  • envisaging tasks and activities for volunteers that respect the qualitative principles of the European Voluntary Service, as described in the EVS Charter;
  • providing volunteers with on-going task-related, linguistic, personal and administrative support throughout the duration of the EVS activity, with the help of a mentor for the participants;
  • carrying out dissemination and information activities;
  • involving the Associated Partner in relevant tasks in the project (including complementary activities).

For activities falling within the thematic areas and scope of the European Solidarity Corps (i.e. services lasting 2 to 12 months and taking place in a Programme Country), the selection of volunteers through the European Solidarity Corps database is strongly encouraged.

Complementary activities

The project may include the organisation of relevant complementary activities to reach its objectives as well as to strengthen its systemic impact. These complementary activities could be job shadowing, meetings, workshops, conferences, seminars, training courses, coaching, etc.

 

What is the role of organisations participating in this project?

Participating organisations involved in the EVS activities assume the following roles and tasks:

  • Applicant organisation: in charge of applying, signing and managing the grant agreement and reporting and coordinating the whole project. The applicant organisation assumes as well the overall responsibility for the implementation of the EVS activities. The applicant can also – but not necessarily – act as sending or receiving organisation.
  • Sending and receiving organisations: implementing the EVS activities and providing support to volunteers during all phases of the project.

Associated partners: In addition to the organisations formally participating in the EVS activities and holding a valid EVS accreditation, a Strategic EVS project may also involve associated partners from the public or private sector who contribute to the implementation of specific project tasks/activities or support the dissemination and sustainability of the project. For contractual management issues, associated partners are not considered as part of the project partners, and they do not receive funding. However, their involvement and role in the project and different activities have to be clearly described, as well as how they can bring added value to the planned activities by investing resources and know-how.

What else should you know about this Action?

Participants from/to Outermost regions and Overseas Countries and Territories

In line with the Regulation establishing the Erasmus+ Programme, which calls on taking into account the constraints imposed by the remoteness of the outermost regions and the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) of the Union when implementing the Programme, special funding rules are set in order to support expensive travel costs of participants from/to  outermost regions and OCTs insufficiently covered by the the standard funding rules (based on contribution to unit costs per travel distance band).

Applicants of mobility projects will be allowed to claim financial support for travel costs of participants from/to  outermost regions and OCTs under the budget heading "exceptional costs" (up to a maximum of 80% of total eligible costs: see "What are the funding rules?"). This would be allowed provided that applicants can justify that the standard funding rules (based on contribution to unit costs per travel distance band) do not cover at least 70% of the travel costs of participants.

  • 1. In this context a public body at national or regional level is considered a public body that 1) provides services or has an administrative area of competence that covers the whole national or regional territory and b) has a monopoly, in the sense that there are no other bodies that carry out the same functions in the country or region (typical examples: Ministries, State Agencies, Regional public authorities, etc.). In this sense, schools, universities or other bodies, even if they are established by national law, are excluded from this category and qualify as public bodies at local level.
