ELIX – Conservation Volunteers Greece launches a new project titled “V.I.P. – Volunteering is Possible” that has been approved for funding and will be financially supported by the Erasmus+ programme.

This project aims to reach young people with fewer opportunities who are often excluded from mobility programmes and to provide them with the opportunity to equally participate.

ELIX participates in a 3-year project from January 2018 to December 2020, titled “#IVS4Peace, Inclusive Voluntary Service 4 Peace” that has been approved for funding by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission.

This project has been applied and will be coordinated by the Coordinating Committee of the International Voluntary Service (CCIVS) and will be implemented with the participation of the two international networks such as the Alliance of European Voluntary Service Organisations (Alliance) and the Youth of European Nationalities (YEN) as well as national organisations such as ELIX - Conservation Volunteers (Greece), Egyesek Youth Organization (Hungary), Solidarités Jeunesses (France), and Compagnons Bâtisseurs - CBB (Belgium).

In 2017, ELIX is celebrating 30 years of action. All these years, ELIX has played an active role in the field of volunteering on national and international level. With credibility and responsibility, ELIX, is giving the chance to an always increasing number of young people to participate in voluntary projects abroad and while receiving foreign volunteers to offer their voluntary service in Greece.

This year, ELIX has the honor to host the 35th Annual General Assembly of the ALLIANCE of European Voluntary Service Organisations, that will be held in Athens from the 1st to the 3rd of November 2017.

From 21st to 26th of February 2017, ELIX will be hosting the Induction seminar in Athens as the first step within the Long Term Training Course (LTTC) of our network ALLIANCE of European Voluntary Service Organisations.

The Induction Seminar aims at providing young trainees with information and resources on how to design IVS projects as structured methodological and pedagogical tools.

ELIX in cooperation with Finn Church Aid (FCA) and Teachers without Borders, and funded by UNICEF and Church of Sweden, has started the implementation of the educational programme addressed to refugee children aged 3-17, who are staying in the regions of Attica and Central Macedonia. The programme will last until June 2017.

The aim is to provide quality, non-formal education, to enhance psychosocial well-being and positive integration. Read the Press Release.
