The mid-term evaluation allows volunteers to assess their experience so far and to reflect
on the activities, role and support of the Host Organisation and on their own contribution.
The mid-term evaluation is essential for risk prevention and crisis management and it
thus facilitates conflict resolution — if necessary! In addition, volunteers share positive
experiences and increase their motivation.
The evaluation provides the opportunity to learn from everybody’s ‘EVS story’ and
enables the volunteers to plan developments and/or further improvements in their
service and to think about what they will do in the longer term, once their period of
service is over. The evaluation should also raise awareness of the personal learning
process, linking it to the key competences of the Youthpass.
Overall, the mid-term evaluation should offer a relaxed and informal atmosphere so the
volunteers feel comfortable sharing experiences and saying whatever is important for
