The Ecumenical Youth Services have been active with international volunteer re-construction and work camps since 1956. Anniversaries are always an opportunity to look back, celebrate what has been achieved and plan for the future. As a reminder, past anniversaries are documented in the subheadings of “Anniversary” and information is provided on upcoming anniversaries.

Here is a chronicle of the history of the Ecumenical Youth Services.
