On Arrival Training (EVS)

After 1 week I am in Canary Island, On arrival training is calling me I received the ticket that I had to go to the mainland (Pamplona, Navarra) which was makes me so excited. I knew, Yuhuu I am going to on Arrival Training of European Voluntary Service together with other participants from the different countries and I believe training would be awesome, instead of having new friends from different countries also had the best training practices and module.

Shortly, I took the flight early morning from Tenerife and spent more or less 5 hours with the transfer in Madrid Barajas Airport. Arrived safely in Pamplona, I went to the bus station in Pamplona and I saw some people which is a big group around 30 people were waiting the bus, and they are the other volunteers who are going to have the same training with me. We went together with the bus, actually the training is located in the small city called Alsasua took another 1 hour from the city center.

I was staying together with other volunteers in the youth hostel, finally the numbers of participants was 26 persons and from 16 different countries. The arrival training started by introduction session  we were getting to know each other, trainers, and schedule.  The next day until the fifth day we got to know deeper about European Voluntary Service, Youthpass (goals and target and learning process during the program), European Union, Insurance, role of hosting organization, cultural awareness. All the volunteers were involved actively during the training, even thought I felt that was very intense training, but I got so much Fun you guys can check it on the video that I shared!
