With 13 participants – which turned out to be a very lucky number (we had no doubts) – the course was a real success. Each participant brought in a specific piece of expertise and made the course become a truly European learning experience
We were hosted by APOWER that is taking wonderfully care of everything.

VALLEY partner meeting in Göttingen

logo_valley_hell_300dpiIn early May the VALLEY (Validation System in Lifelong Learning Experiences of Youth Volunteering) partners came together in Göttingen to set up the plan for putting the goals of VALLEY into practice. The first steps focus on assessing the field of volunteering opportunities for youths and the practices in terms of validation of competences that young people acquire during their volunteering experiences. For this purpose an online survey will be launched in the middle of June that addresses young volunteers as well as volunteering organisations to ask for their experieIMG_0839nces and needs. The survey is backed by an extensive internet research to deepen the findings. Based on these research results the VALLEY team will customise the offers that are to be developed in the coming two years.
