Our European Volunteers

Galway Community Circus is accredited as a Host Organisation with the European Voluntary Service (EVS), funded by the EU Erasmus+ programme. We have been hosting young European circus artists through the EVS scheme since 2013. We have hosted volunteers from Italy, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic and the UK, each of whom have made unique contributions to our circus community and become valued members of our circus team. 

The European Voluntary Service

The EVS programme helps young people travel abroad to participate in volunteering projects in areas such as youth work, cultural activities, social care or environmental protection. EVS volunteers commit themselves to the work of an organisation abroad for a specified period of time, ranging from 2 weeks (minimum) to 12 months (maximum). https://europa.eu/youth/eu/article/46/73_en
