Calling all AFS Volunters! Registration for the Summer Summit 2019 is Open

We as the Prep-Team are super excited to share that the registration for this years VSS in Austria is now open.

In line with EFIL’s yearly focus on Social Impact we want to talk about the impact of our programs and the work we do as volunteers and take the time to reflect upon the current status and share best practices. But the VSS is of course more than that, it is also an opportunity to make new friends, to enjoy the beautiful scenery Austria has to offer and to create a stronger spirit of international community between volunteers from different countries.

So if you want to spend an amazing week in Austria this summer feel free to apply and we would be happy to meet you in July.

We will keep you updated with future news post and you can also follow us on Instagram and Facebook. If you have any questions also don’t hesitate to contact us at
