EVS trainings in the region
In Programme countries, the Training and Evaluation Cycle is implemented by the National Agencies. In the Programme's Neighbouring partner countries in the Western Balkans and Eastern Partnership countries and the Russian Federation, the training and evaluation cycle is implemented by the SALTO SEE Resource Centre (for the Western Balkans) and the SALTO EECA Resource Centre (for Eastern Partnership countries and the Russian Federation).
In the countries of the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro and Serbia), these training sessions are usually organised at regional level, bringing together EVS volunteers based in the whole region for one session. This arrangement gives EVS volunteers the opportunity to meet other volunteers in the region and to get to know different realities within the region itself.
*This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
