The Alliance of European Voluntary Service Organisations is an International Non-Governmental Youth Organisation. It represents national voluntary service organisations that promote intercultural understanding, peace, democratic participation and equality, in the spirit of respect for universal human rights.
The Alliance, founded in 1982, is presently made up of 50 members from 28 countries in Europe, Asia and America. Each member organisation runs an annual programme of International Volunteer Projects in their own country and exchanges volunteers with each other following the Alliance Quality Charter. Every year an average of 13.000 young volunteers participate in more than 1200 local community projects organised by member organisations.read more
