SITID: OPEN CAFE – EVS and Volunteering

At the end of May, MEXPERT hosted the OPEN CAFE with the topic of EVS and Volunteering.

MEXPERT invited local EVS volunteers to the Open Cafe so they could have credible and real first hand experiences of the EVS experiences. MEXPERT connected also with local NGOs which are volunteer based. These participants shared how volunteering had affected them, developed their skills and even helped them to get a job.

MEXPERT’s staff presented the opportunity of EVS and Volunteering. The group was a mixed group of individuals who had and had not experienced EVS before. This Open Cafe gave participants who had participated in EVS to share their experiences and what they had learnt and what the opportunity was.
