Our partners at the Olde Vechte Foundation in Ommen, the Netherlands, are organizing a GroupEVS-project for the 8th time. During this project, which lasts from the 29th of June until the 26th of August 2015 they will host up to 30 volunteers from twelve to fifteen different countries.
During the project, the thirty volunteers will be hosted at the Olde Vechte Foundation where they will support local organizations in an active and practical manner, doing volunteer work on daily activities. A few of the local organizations in Ommen participating in the EVS project include a cheese farm, a horse farm and a pet shelter, a second hand shop and a youth camping. This short list of participating organizations, while far from complete, should go to show that there’s something to do for everyone, no matter what your interests are!
Not only will you be supporting Dutch organizations, you will gain a valuable experience living abroad, not just learning about the Dutch way of life, but gaining an insight in cultures from all over Europe.
Of course you won’t spend all your time working the farm or camping, you’ll have plenty of free time too. During this free time, you’re free to visit other cities, hang out with your friends, join the karaoke(!) evenings or anything else your heart desires.

The application form can be found here and if you have any more questions, you can contact us here.
Since this project is a short-term EVS experience, meaning it lasts less than two months, you’ll be able to participate in a second EVS-project in the future to make full use of the 12 months you’re allowed to have.
Let us know if you’re interested, we can promise you that the Netherlands is an experience you’ll never forget!
