    • A.

      National Agency

    • B.

      Executive Agency

    • C.

      National Youth Ministry

    Correct Answer

    If the applicant organization is from an EU programme country and is applying for a project, the application is submitted to the National Agency. This is because the National Agency is responsible for receiving and reviewing project applications from organizations within their respective countries. The National Agency plays a crucial role in the selection and funding process of projects, ensuring that they align with the objectives and criteria set by the EU programme. The Executive Agency may be involved in the implementation and management of approved projects, but the initial submission of the application is done through the National Agency. The National Youth Ministry is not directly involved in the application process for EU programme projects.

The EVS programme focuses on promoting active participation in society and fostering understanding between different cultures, but it does not directly address or promote tourism as a value.

With two people, the volunteer can receive the necessary guidance, assistance, and supervision, resulting in a smoother and more productive volunteering experience.

This means that it is their duty to ensure that the volunteer has a place to stay that meets certain standards of quality and safety. This could include providing a clean and comfortable living space, ensuring that the accommodation is in a safe location, and addressing any maintenance or security concerns that may arise. By taking on this responsibility, the receiving organization is ensuring that the volunteer has a suitable place to live while they are working or volunteering for the organization.

      The mentor

    • B.

      The supervisor

    • C.

      Both, mentioned above

    Correct Answer
    A. The mentor
    Explanation
    The mentor is responsible for supporting the volunteer's learning process and personal adjustment in the new environment. They provide guidance, advice, and assistance to help the volunteer navigate their new surroundings and adapt to their role. The mentor acts as a trusted confidant and resource for the volunteer, helping them overcome challenges and achieve their goals. The supervisor, on the other hand, may have a more administrative or managerial role and may not be as directly involved in the volunteer's personal development and adjustment. Therefore, the mentor is the primary source of support in this context.
