It’s always strange to put your experience in a short paragraph or a sentence. I can say “it was great”, but it captures nothing. I’d like to talk about it for hours, but not many would want to listen. I might want to keep some parts for myself, though they might be the most interesting. […]

It was around November 2015 when I decided to do EVS. I was in the last year of university. I started to check all the rules, links to apply and stuff to do. Around February, I was accepted by an organization for a 12 months project from Slovenia, which made me extra happy, because I […]

I’ve helped as a volunteer in almost all sections of Zavod O and I am impressed how easy the brands cooperate with each other. The leaders in the organization know how to motivate and inspire. Employees come with a desire to work and make something out of nothing, the bosses are geniuses in their field of activity and wonderful people from whom you can learn and charge.

Zavod O is my host organisation in my EVS project. I am really happy with organisation work and that I am here. Being here opens a lot of possibilities to travel and to know a lot of people and other cultures. Here are good living conditions and nice attitude from others. In Zavod O organisation you can relax in different parties and also you can get a good experience in non formal education.

In my opinion organization Zavod O excellently copes with one of its main goals – raising the quality of life of Škofja Loka youth. Concerts and theme nights, various art and computer workshops, seminars and much more – all this makes lives of Škofja Loka inhabitants colorful and diverse. The big plus of Zavod O is its work with EVS volunteers, which allows organization to share experiences with young people from different countries and get their valuable international impact on both the organization and the local community generally.

Zavod O is one of the pillars of culture, art and education in Škofja Loka. The 3 centers that make up the organization are responsible to implement new proposals to enrich the cultural and social life of the people. Zavod O is full of workers with new ideas, besides bringing volunteers from different parts of Europe, made for introducing new cultures in the town.

Zavod O is the organization full with different interesting and genious people, who has right ambition and strength to change not only local environment . People in the organization and out there in Slovenia generally, are amazing, impressive and shocking with their hospitality, rich culture, positivity, kind personality… I would recommend Zavod O and its sections as the one of the best place you can discover yourself in better ways.

I came back to Škofja Loka as a long term EVS volunteer in organization ,,UrbanProd’’ (France, Marseille) to realize my personal project here, in Slovenia. I made this decision after doing a short term EVS in Škofja loka last year and spending my holidays here. I had unforgettable emotions which were caused by this place. Škofja loka, organization Zavod O, club ,,Pri rdeči ostrigi’’, all these places and people here are like human charger for me. Each time after visiting this place I have new emotions, experiences and I’m totally charged for new actions. As I said, I call this place a human charger, and for that I have a real reason. This is the place where people want to come back and the good thing is that Zavod O will allways welcome you with smile and kindness.
