As part of the project “Linking Bridges – Building Networks” ca. 30 young activists for European Voluntary Service (EVS) have travelled through Armenia. Among of the participants were also Anna Perepechai, Lisa Stapper und Lukas Seidler who were sent by our association Kultur Aktiv. On site, they will meet other EVS-experts and local partners. Our Armenian partner of Youth Initiative Center (YIC) from Gyumri had prepared an exciting programme: A seven day lasting EVS-seminar for buildup of partnerships, which include several stations in Armenia from north to south. Aim was the advancement of cooperation between EVS-organisations and an improvement of the quality and new innovations in the EVS by the use of well-tried methods.
Likewise, this seminar could help offering a connection between experienced and new organisations, which work together with the EVS. Through the exchange and the involvement of experiences and new perspectives as well as the buildup of trustable partnerships EVS-projects have gained more and more quality for future projects.
