YOUth support



“Last years of studies I spent in Belgrade, so after EVS volunteering in Wien as a town gave me such an outstanding experience as an environment where things are functioning well. The emotions regarding to Vienna I will keep with me and pack in my suitcase.”

„EVS is the perfect way to gain experiences after studies, it helps to become more independant and open-minded.“

“I´m happy to go back but also sad to leave this city and new friends”

“It was a very surprising gift. I will never forget it!”
