Testimony of Past Candidate
We are delighted to share with you the testimony of one of our participant who took part in our Slovakia Programme!
Giorgio Baglioni: “This was a fantastic experience for me and I definitely recommend it. Not only is it a free way of seeing Slovakia, but the skills you learn and the people you meet are great. As there is such a range of countries attending, you can really build connections and learn about so many cultures at once. Each country had to give a presentation to the group about their country, and this was a nice way of understanding their background and seeing glimpses of their country.”
We are delighted to share with you the testimony of one of our participants who took part in a Youth Exchange programme in Italy.
Jola Brown: “This experience was not only an amazing opportunity to visit Italy but also to meet new people and make new friends. I have been able to develop my theatre skills and have definitely improved my confidence as a person, not only through communication but also through my piano playing and singing. This experience will be highly valuable to me in the future as it adds to my mobility experience which will be very useful for my future aspirations to work abroad. Additionally, I wish to join a theatre club at my new university in September 2016. I believe that this experience will really benefit me in the long-run. I had such a lovely time and I would love to go again. I highly recommend this project to anyone who’s up for an adventure.”

Local community needs: Although mobility benefits have been proven, local young under NEETs group, do not consider to have an experienced abroad even they are financially supported. According to discussions with local stakeholders (third sector organisations, educators and others), this is due to the lack of information, awareness of mobility benefits, and lack of motivation of youth. These experiences will connect young people with EVS volunteers. It will raise awareness about Erasmus+ programmes and will benefits all participants.
