All the activities will be developed in 3 dimensions: personal development, development within the host organization and community development. The volunteers will be charged with designing, organizing, and implementing, in conjunction with local counterparts and youngsters from their hosting communities, a variety of activities such as: sports events, environmental activities, group games,  thematic workshops, Youth camps, walks in the cities, visits to different sights and events, Theatre and art creative workshop, Music and dance, Cultural awareness and learning activities, etc., All volunteers will get the opportunity to get involved in other national and/or international programs and activities developed by Alliance during the EVS Service.

Volunteer’s Tasks: The volunteer’s tasks will be diverse and focused both on social and personal development of the volunteers as well as the community development. The role of the volunteers will be that of attending all the meetings, trainings and scheduled activities, dedicate their time according to the recommended hours in assisting in the preparation, implementation and evaluation of various activities: Attend all preparation, evaluation, planning and thematic trainings ( On Arrival), attend all language classes, participate in the class , learn and prepare accordingly, prepare themselves for each meeting with the requested materials (for example: filling on time the monthly evaluation forms), assist the local community facilitator in the preparation, implementation and evaluation of the community non formal education activities, Assist in working with the youngsters, propose activities , discussion topics, share opinions, cultural and traditional customs, etc. , Openly communicate with the mentor, the local community facilitator, his/her peer, volunteers and the EVS coordinator, Be responsible and meet one’s tasks accordingly.

After one month, the volunteers will either live in their apartments in Donetsk or be distributed to the different rural and small urban communities (depends on their workplace), where they will live either with host families or share a living location together. The living location will meet decent living standards (2 persons/ room, kitchen and bathroom, clean and secure location). Alliance in cooperation with each hosting community will make all efforts to find the best accommodation location for the volunteers. All accommodation and utility costs (water, gas, electricity) shall be covered by the hosting organization.

Food: Buying and preparing the food is the sole responsibility of the volunteers. For preparing the food the volunteers will have free access to an equipped kitchen. In the case of volunteers staying in host families a solution will be to serve meals with the family. The hosting organization will provide each volunteer with a monthly food allowance from which they shall cover the alimentation costs. The allowance is enough for insuring a very good living standard (being much higher than the amount and average citizen from the region spends for food). However the allowance will not be enough for ensuring every day eating in a restaurant or bistro.

Transport:  The local transportation costs of the volunteers necessary for the activities implementation will be covered 100% by the organization from the project budget. The international transport of the volunteer from his/her home to the site of the project shall be covered 90% – two ways (Economy flight tickets and/or 2nd class train tickets). The personal transport of the volunteers (local, national or international) will be not in the responsibility of the organization.

Language training: Due to the importance of communication with the people from the hosting communities (most of them can not speak any foreign languages) will be of crucial importance for the volunteers to learn the Russian Language at a good speaking level. The volunteers will have the responsibility to attend all language courses according to the schedule as well as to make every effort in studying and learning the language. The Coordinating Organizations will arrange for Russian Language Courses on weekly basis for as much time as the volunteer will need. The Russian language lessons shall be provided by experienced language teachers. The content and structure of the language courses will be projected together with the volunteers, taking into consideration their learning abilities and needs. The language courses will be provided free of charge for the entire period of the EVS project.
