About LYVS

League of Youth Voluntary Service (LYVS) is a non-profit non-governmental youth organization which was created to develop volunteer movement in Belarus. The organization was founded in 1994 by the team of the active youth workers who wanted to bring the values of the non-formal education and volunteering closer to the Belarusian youth.

Our mission: We work to create opportunities for young people’s development, personal and professional growth.

Our main activities: international workcamps, educational program for camp leaders “Respublika”, Erasmus+ (trainings, seminars, PBAs, study visits, youth exchanges, sending and hosting EVS), creative laboratory “Clever”, intercultural learning (international evenings, movie nights, free language courses), etc.
