AMPANS has collaborated with the European Voluntary Service since 2000 as a welcoming entity and, since 2017, also as a coordinating entity. Volunteers join AMPANS annually in day care centers or in homes and residential services to support professionals.
We participate in the European solidarity volunteering program because of the enrichment that comes with having, in our structure, volunteers from other European countries. The European volunteering program makes it easier to make society aware of the services and needs of people with disabilities, expand the knowledge of AMPANS, inside and outside our community, and promote social responsibility in the care of people with disabilities or other groups at risk of exclusion.
The European Voluntary Service (SVE) is an action of the Erasmus + program of the European Union. Every year, we welcome four young people who decide to join the European volunteer corps and choose our organization to actively collaborate, spending 9 months getting to know the world of disability and care for people with functional diversity.
