Volunteers that are hosted by Host/Coordinating organizations that are member of The GloRe Network have the possibility to receive 3 types of certificates:
1- The Participation Certificate can be issued for all volunteers involved in a project for a minimum of 20 days and describe the involvement and tasks performed by the volunteer. This document is useful to report the duration and nature of activities performed by the volunteer, while it doesn’t describe what the volunteer learnt through the experience.
2- The Soft Skills GloRe Certificate can be issued for projects lasting at least 3 months and describes the soft skills acquired by the volunteer. The volunteer can pick 5 to 10 soft skills among a list of 32 that have been classified into 4 categories. In order to fill out the certificate, the volunteer has to follow this procedure.
3- The Professional Statement can be issued by the Host/Coordinating Organization to volunteers that have received the Soft Skills GloRe Certificate. It proves that, from the Host/Coordinating Organization point of view, the volunteer has demonstrated a professional level in performing the tasks assigned. This document can be issued by the Host/Coordinating Organisation only for areas of work in which the organization has professional expertise. For example, an organization working with street children can issue a “Street Educator Professional Statement” but not the “Web Design Professional Statement” if they don’t have a web designer on its staff.
The Benefits of GloRe Certificate for the volunteers are:
- To receive a certificate that values your non-academic competencies
- To enhance personal esteem through a self-evaluation and a validation of the soft skills acquired by the Host/Coordinating Organization
- To have a framework to define their personal competencies
- To help the volunteer to valorize their experience to potential employers
