Isla CreActiva is looking for one Spanish volunteer, 18-30 years old, to participate in an EVS project at Sofía, Bulgary.

Bulgarian Youth Forum (BYF) is a youth organisation, which supports the young people in their efforts to be complete and active persons in the society. In this connection we aim to establish and facilitate socially beneficial activities, having a direct and indirect impact on developing the youth potential. On account of this we have activities in different spheres which can be of interest for the young people like human rights, social work, tolerance and intercultural diversity, youth and social entrepreneurship, sport and healthy lifestyle, saving of cultural and historical heritage, developing tourism in unpopular regions and supporting the appearance of new working places for the young people there and so on. As our members are with different social and cultural background we know how important it is for them to have equal possibilities for personal and professional development and to play an active role in the society. Through this we show the young people how important is to live in peace and to be united as this is a way to promote the democratic virtues and make them a stable base for the prosperity and development of our society.
Since late 2012 Bulgarian Youth Forum is officially a basic institution of the Faculty of Education at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”. Experts from the association organize and carry out the pre-diploma practice of the students from “Non-Formal Education” bachelor programme in the Faculty of Education.
