Nordic EVS-mentor training

Training Course

15-17 March 2017 | Bromma, Sweden

The overall aim of this activity is to increase the quality of mentoring in EVS and to support active mentors in the Nordic countries, to further develop competences that are needed as a mentor within EVS.

We welcome you who work with EVS in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Finland) to this training course and we offer you a unique chance to participate in the first Nordic mentor training ever arranged. This training invites EVS mentors who feel the need of developing their competences and improving the quality of their mentorship. The idea is that the mentors will reflect on the roles, responsibilities and challenges in mentoring and share experiences and practices. This will be fostered through:

• increasing the knowledge about mentoring in EVS, basic knowledge in EVS in general and about the framework Programme Erasmus+: Youth in Action
• developing a common understanding of mentoring within EVS
• reflecting about roles, responsibilities, challenges and needs concerning mentorship in EVS
• sharing best practice and tools for supporting EVS volunteers


During the course the participants will reflect on the roles, responsibilities, needs and challenges of the EVS mentors, share experiences, and elaborate proposals to improve the quality of their mentorship, in the different aspects of their daily activity (giving personal support to volunteers, supporting them in the integration in the local community, providing them support for the their learning /Youthpass process, conflict prevention and management).

The educational approach of the training activity is based on non-formal education methods as well as the contribution of participants and on active participation in all parts.
