The VALLEY project team has launched an online survey addressing both volunteering organisations and volunteers.
With the help of the surveys the team wants to get a deeper insight in the competences that can be acquired during volunteering services and if and how these are assessed and recognised.
If you work in the volunteering sector, please fill in the questionnaire for volunteering organisers. The questionnaire is available in German, English, French, Italian and Romanian: Survey for volunteering organisers
If you have worked or are currently working as a volunteer, please fill in the survey for (ex)volunteers. The questionnaire is available in German, English, French, Italian and Romanian: Survey for (ex)volunteers
In 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 experiences 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.
