EVS at Hostelling International Norway
The world is getting smaller and smaller, and young people travel more than ever before. We at Hostelling International Norway believe that when you travel and meet other people, prejudices are fought and we can together create a more peaceful world. That’s actually why our non-profit organization exists!
But sometimes, people need that extra push to socialize with others. Technology can take away a lot of the attention, and we are looking for young, enthusiastic Europeans to fight the smart phones and create fun, engaging activities for hostel guests, staff and the local community. The focus is on sustainable travel, and how people can travel responsibly – which can mean anything from recycling, working in our Urban Garden, travelling around in Norway, creating city walks or taking guests for hikes or social barbeques. The imagination is the limit!
Our current volunteers have been travelling around in Norway meeting people from all over the world, creating events, working with their social media skills as well as project management. Looking at their pictures it sure looks like they are having a good time! Our volunteer Maria has summed up some of her experiences in our blog.
Does this sound like something for you or someone you know? Every year, HI Norway applies for funding from the EU to create projects where young people can meet, exchange and share experiences. In this way we believe we contribute to a world which is more understanding and more caring.
The European Voluntary Service is funded through the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, and aims at giving young people a chance to experience another culture in Europe. We strongly support the efforts of giving people the possibility to see that, after all, we are quite alike.
If you find this interesting, please apply for one of our placements before January 10th.
