Our association is accredited by the European Commission to coordinate volunteer projects, to host international volunteers and to send Romanian volunteers in internships abroad, within the Erasmus + and European Solidarity Corps programs, about which you can find out more details here:
AIST offers a plethora of opportunities, the duration of time spent abroad ranging from short, two months internships (ideal for college students and adult high school students during the summer holidays) to long internships of up to twelve months (which can cover gaps in the educational or professional activity). These periods of time spent in other European areas facilitate the accumulation of practical experiences and skills, according to one’s preferences and interests, improve the use of foreign languages and develop independent living skills, all recognized by the issuance of an International Certificate called YouthPass, about which you can read more information here Youthpass
Since 2013, we have offered the chance to live the experience of international volunteering to a number of about one hundred young people from Romania, some of them becoming true non-formal ambassadors of our country and deeply inspiring the fresh air of opportunities in other countries. Because we take this activity of our Association very seriously, we have chosen to promote only young people who are sincerely concerned about volunteering activities, discouraging alleged opportunists or free tourism enthusiasts.
Due to the stable and effective network of partnerships with other organizations across Europe, our colleagues can help you find what works best for you from the vast online database and we can recommend serious projects and host organizations that will transform your volunteering internships in memorable life experiences.
Provided you have found a project that you would like to access or you are interested in the projects already approved and funded by our partner organizations, we invite you to send us an e-mail regarding this matter at the following e-mail addresses: Ralu.Contiu @ AISTschool.ro or Onoriu.Dan@AISTschool.ro to set up a counseling meeting at our headquarters.
Through everything we do, we remain true to our motto, that of being the Gate towards the World!
