About the Awards
The Erasmus+ Volunteering Awards are a celebration of the achievements of young people volunteering abroad as part of an Erasmus+ or European Voluntary Service project. The Awards are a platform for young people like yourself to share your unique volunteering experience with other young people from across Europe, to inspire and encourage them to start their own adventure.
How you can win
All you have to do is film a one-minute video about your volunteering experience and post it to the Awards website before the 1st of May. Tell the world your volunteering story, keep it real and inspirational.
Winners will be chosen by a jury of three – a representative of the European Commission, a representative of the European Youth Card Association and a former EVS volunteer. They will be looking for the videos…
- with the most Facebook likes (make sure to share your video!)
- with loads of creativity
- that are super inspirational and make you want to get up and go on your own volunteering adventure.
The ten best stories shared between the 1st of April and the 1st of May 2018 will be rewarded with city breaks in Barcelona (Spain), Dubrovnik (Croatia), Ljubljana, Bled or Izola (Slovenia), Marsaxlokk (Malta), Palma de Mallorca (Spain), Paris (France), Varna (Bulgaria), Zaragoza (Spain), 2 Interrail Passes and a destination the winner chooses from the European routes flown by Air Europa. Plus, you can bring a friend along!
All winners will be invited to attend the European Youth Event in Strasbourg on the 1st and 2nd of June.

The European Youth Card Association together with the European Commission offer all young people volunteering abroad with the Erasmus+ programme a special edition of the European Youth Card as a thank you for your service. Your card gives you access to over 60,000 discounts and benefits on travel, culture, accommodation, transportation, sports, shopping and more. The card is valid in 36 countries across Europe and helps you spend less and experience more during your service.
