International Center for Intercultural Research, Learning and Dialogue (ICIRLD) is a sending and hosting organisation in Armenia for the European Voluntary Service (EVS). This means that if you're between 18 and 30 years old and live in Europe, we can apply for funding for you to volunteer with us.

If you live in Armenia, and want to volunteer abroad, we can act as your sending organisation. Together we can consult the database of approved host placements to find something that suits you, or suggest partner organisations that we've worked with before, and apply for the funding you'll need.

Volunteer abroad

There are two ways to apply for an EVS abroad (which of course can also be combined)

Option 1: Register here. We will invite you to take part in our regular EVS Meetings and let you know about our Open Calls for EVS placements and about all further details of the application process.

  • Advantages: You will only get information about already approved projects
  • Disadvantages: You will have to wait for open calls and the project might not suit your interests completely. You will also compete with other applicants about the approved projects

Option 2: You can search for projects online for yourself in the EVS Database and contact hosting organisations about the possibility to do your EVS there. In case you reach an agreement with a host organisation, ICIRLD can act as your sending organization.

  • Advantages: You can search for projects which really suits your needs and interests. If you reach an agreement with a host organization there won't be further competition about the placement
  • Disadvantages: more effort :)

Volunteer in Armenia

If you live in Europe and want to volunteer in Armenia, we can discuss potential projects with you. For this, register here.

EVS Grant application deadlines

Important! There are 3 deadlines for EVS grant applications annually, and the deadline when we submit the application determines your possible placement start date. If you want to start volunteering on any particular date, you need to contact us at least one month before the deadline.
