The story behind the project

Certification: 3 meetings have been held to define the set of soft skills that will be used for the certification along with the certification workflow and platform.

International volunteering training and support cycle: Partners’s organisation staff attended 2 Training of Trainers to support the volunteers’ experience and their capacity to acknowledge their learning/ability to go through the certification process.

European Voluntary Service: 12 young people from Europe and Latin America had 5 months international volunteering experience (EVS) within an organization member of the network. They had the opportunity to test the certification process and the capacity of the organisations to host volunteers.

Dissemination: in order to extend the network and to increase the visibility of the certification and the platform, each partner organisation held a dissemination event involving several local stakeholders and participants.
