European Voluntary Service Charter

The EVS core values and quality standards are laid down in the EVS Charter. To uphold these standards, organisations interested in sending or hosting EVS volunteers, or coordinating an EVS project, need first to be accredited.

To do this organisations must first submit an application for accreditation (not the same as a funding application) via their National Agency or SALTO

If their application is approved, they can take part in applications for EVS projects. An accreditation can be withdrawn immediately in cases of non-compliance with the Charter. Organisations accredited to take part in EVS can be found in the EVS database.
