Purpose of the Project: V for Volunteers (V4V) aims to empower youth workers and support staff who are experienced in the volunteerism field to develop competences related to promotion, implementation and mainstreaming of volunteer projects as a tool for social inclusion and de-radicalization as well as to contribute to the legal decision and policy-making processes that shapes the voluntary youth work across Europe, based on non-formal educational activities via cooperation with local, regional and international authorities.
The implementation of the V4V project has been divided into three phases. The first phase will have a holistic approach to volunteerism and discover the role of volunteerism as a way of civic engagement and capacity development of youth.
The second phase of the project will create a sharing space for evaluating the volunteering projects that the partners have been implementing so far in order to highlight good and bad practices, learning points and experiences.
In the third phase of the project, participants will have an open forum methodology in order to establish policy recommendations regarding the framework of voluntary projects, which would be shared with the local, regional and European level authorities.
