Annual meeting to evaluate the YOUTH IN ACTION 2008 Program


Sashka Vitanova, coordinator of the work with volunteers at the Rescue Center, took part in an Annual Meeting for evaluation of “Youth in Action 2007-2013” for the year 2008 and Eurodesk that was held on February 13th, 2009 in “Dedeman Princess” Hotel, Sofia.

The meeting was attended by the team of the National Center for European Youth Programs and Initiatives (NCEYPI), Mrs. Vesela Lecheva – Director of the State Agency for Youth and Sports, representatives of the Greek and the Turkish national agencies, as well as representatives of organizations working under this program. The current EVS projects of the Rescue Center were presented in the “Café gallery”.

In the period February 14th-16th, the host organizations were involved in a training event related to Action 2: European Voluntary Service. More than 35 representatives of host organizations took part in the event. This training enabled closer acquaintances, personal contacts, exchange of experience and information on important issues related to the work with volunteers and the management of the EVS projects, as well as the changes made since the beginning of 2009. The voluntary activities implemented at the Wildlife Rescue Center were presented in a presentation prepared by our ex-volunteer Richard Werban (Germany) ( ), which not only lightened the working atmosphere, but also became part of the good practices.
