MPV – Moving People in Volunteering

Objectives

  • To share and further explore practices for volunteers’ management at local and international level through non-formal learning and active participation approaches
  • To promote young people’s social inclusion and stimulate their active participation in democratic life
  • To transfer the knowledge and know-how into a universal practice of volunteers management
  • To support the professional development of staff and youth workers in managing volunteers, involving young people with a disadvantaged background, and enhancing cooperation among project partners

Activities

  • TRAINING COURSE: the concept of volunteers’ management will be introduced and elaborated, through
    sharing volunteering practices and experience in youth work. The TC will allow participants to discover the
    potential of volunteerism to promote social inclusion and respect to diversity. It will be based on non-formal
    education methods allowing participants to identify and value their skills and permit them to transfer the
    acquired skills in their personal and professional life
  • INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEERING: During the mobility volunteers will be involved in the activities
    of the receiving organisation, working with various types of people with fewer opportunities, based on
    cooperative and experiential learning. The planned activities will foster their capacities to design, run and
    evaluate non-formal learning activities. In addition they will develop skills in leadership, community building,
    and intercultural dialogue
