The third partners meeting, held in Glasgow the 1st and 2nd of September was the occasion to share the progresses made by each partner in developing the following tools and activities.

The VALLEY piloting is processing well in all partners country. At the end of the piloting, will be held national workshops in each partners country where volunteers and other youngsters interested in joining volunteering will be present. We will communicate you soon the date of the workshop in Palermo !

Moreover, the partners has focused their work on the Online toolbox which is available on the VALLEY platform. The online toolbox consist of the methodology, volunteers mentoring guidelines for staff/trainers, good practices examples and practical information on how to join the VALLEY community and use the e-platform.

The VALLEY badge is awarded to volunteers who have gone through the VALLEY approach with the aim to receive evidence of competences gained through volunteering. The volunteer has designed an individual learning project within his/her volunteering service and has completed the LEVEL5 self-assessment and validation procedure.

Lastly, it has been launched the campaign for the European Award on assessing validation in volunteering. The winners will have the chance to attend the Final Conference in Marseille (France) on 16th February 2017, hosted by Eurocircle.

VALLEY is financed by Erasmus + Programme, Key Action 2 Strategic Partnership – Youth.
