Interreg Volunteer Youth (IVY) is an initiative supporting Interreg and Cross-Border Cooperation Programmes and Projects. Promoted by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy and managed by the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR), IVY allows for the involvement of young people in projects of European Territorial Cooperation, Pre-Accession Assistance and Neighbourhood Cross-Border Cooperation Programmes.
Projects beneficiaries of ENI CBC Black Sea Basin Programme can host a volunteer to support, promote and report achievements of cooperation. The volunteer will be part of your team, bring new ideas and help realise the project and advertise its results. Each experience is of a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 months.
The application procedure is simple and AEBR looks for candidates thanks to the partnership with the European Solidarity Corps. AEBR financially supports the volunteer, covers the insurance and helps the volunteer relocate.
Since March 2017, over 400 volunteers have joined IVY contributing to the visibility of projects of cooperation all over Europe. Follow their stories at https://www.interregyouth.com/blog.
The objective of IVY is to make cooperation Programmes and their solidarity dimension more visible among citizens while increasing awareness of their projects.
