Concordia is an organisation of non-formal education, which promotes intercultural exchanges. Our traditional activity is the organization of international work camps, and one of its main goals is to allow participants to get open-minded and develop non-formal skills as autonomy and self-confidence, by meeting and living during few weeks with people from all over the world with different cultural and social background and doing a voluntary work. We also involve a lot of volunteers (service civic, EVS and ‘benevoles’) into the activity of our organization.
This Training Course comes from our wish to mix intercultural exchanges with the topic of work with volunteers.
Successful involving of volunteers in our activities is an important part of our daily work. We hope that representatives of your organisations will be motivated to tackle the issues of volunteers tutoring and mentoring, will be eager to share and discuss their experiences and points of view, and will be motivated to gain new skills in this sphere. Together we will be able to make this training course the most interesting we can as one more step for creating the society where more people will be motivated to contribute to its development as volunteers.
THEMES AND SHORT PRESENTATION
– Involving volunteers
– Recruiting, motivation and keeping volunteers
– Inclusive volunteering (work with young people, disabled volunteers, volunteers with mental health needs, homeless people, etc.)
The course will explore wide range of questions concerning the involvement of volunteers into the activities of the organisation. We will explore such aspects of work with volunteers as how to value, reward, recruit and keep volunteers.
The course also aims to develop the ability and confidence of participants to engage with hard-to-reach volunteers, and to develop participant’s knowledge of their specific needs.
The training course is the opportunity for the participants to share different experiences related to these items. It will allow participants to talk about their experiences, but also, thanks to peer-learning process, to exchange ideas and points of view between each other.
By the end of the project the participants will create an overview of their learning outcomes of each day by putting together their guide of Top tips for successful involving volunteers comprising the most essential findings revealed during the project.
The methodology (non-formal education, meetings with professionals, discussions, simulation games) and the structure of the training course will encourage an active involvement of each participant in order to develop competences and new tools for personal and social development. Non-formal education tools will be used to create a friendly and caring atmosphere, considering each participant in his or her diversity, personality and culture, so that each person can feel free to express him(her)self, share his or her experiences, teach and learn from the others. Participants will be encouraged to be responsible for their learning process and outcomes.
Young people from 18 years old working with volunteers. Interested in developing their knowledge in the area of work with volunteering, and to exchange about their experiences.
Good knowledge of English language would be useful to be able to participate actively to the exchange.
