logo valley cesieIn July, the project VALLEY – Validation System in Lifelong Learning Experiences of Youth Volunteering, launched a European wide online survey on the topic of youth volunteering and validation in the six partner countries; Germany, Austria, France, Italy, UK and Romania.

The survey is aimed at volunteering organisations and young people involved in volunteering activities and will investigate practices and opinions concerning the work with young volunteers, specifically young people with fewer opportunities, and the recognition and validation of learning outcomes gained through their volunteering service. It will also directly ask young people about their experiences and opinions of volunteering, not only assessing the competences they have gained during their volunteering service but also how these competences have been evaluated and recognised.

Our survey is still open! So if you are an organisation or a (ex) volunteer who have not yet had the chance to take part, you can still participate in the survey. Your responses will be highly appreciated!

The results will be compiled into a comprehensive report along with results from in depth interviews with organisations and desk-based research used to support the development of the competences and design of the VALLEY validation system.

Many thanks to all those who have already contributed to the survey!

VALLEY is a two year project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme, Key Action 2 – Strategic Partnerships in the field of Youth. VALLEY aims to enhance the learning dimension of volunteering work through the development of a new approach to promote volunteering among young people as a resource of personal empowerment and to validate skills and competences developed during their volunteering experience. The project will maximize the transferability of this learning to other dimensions of people’s life to help understand the global benefits of volunteering in terms of social integration and (re)engagement, civic participation, mobility opportunities, etc.
