“10 Years of EVS” is a project organised by VIEWS International which will take place from May 30th till June 4th 2016 in Liège Belgium. The activity will gather young visually impaired people, and youth workers with or without visual impairment, all involved in EVS projects, in the form of an Evaluation visit under Key Action 1 of the Erasmus+ Programme.

There will be 9 participating countries: (Belgium (BE), Bulgaria (BG), Germany (DE), Finland (FI), Italy (IT), Poland (PL), Romania (RO), Spain (ES) and Turkey (TR). Each partner will send a group of two participant one young visually impaired person and a youth worker, both involved in an EVS project, and interested by the topic. In total there will be 20 participants for this activity as we will have two partners from Turkey.

During the duration of the activity all participants will have the opportunity to evaluate our 10 years of work with adapted EVS for visually impaired persons. Each of them will share their experience, as volunteer sending hosting coordination organization.

We would like to enlarge our network of hosting and coordination organization in order to provide more young visually impaired people the possibility to participate into such projects, and to give those young persons a wider range of projects.

The objectives of our project are:

  • To measure the impact EVS had on the professional, personal and social life of vip EVS volunteers and on the associations involved
  • To increase the capacity of the European organisations to manage projects for VIPs and to exchange experiences on how to adapt EVS projects for vips.
  • At the end of these days we would like to get some inputs in order to make a brochure for organisations with tips how to be prepared to organise such projects.

In order to fulfil our objectives we will use dynamic methodology in working in groups, brain storming sharing experiences and an open space presentation
with stands where everyone can better know each other’s work in the field of EVS.
