The aim of the project was to improve the quality of volunteering projects. This particular training focused on supporting learning of volunteers and promoting recognition of learning through volunteering.
After completing all stages of the project participants were able to identify volunteers’ needs and better assign the tasks to volunteers; they communicated better and were able to manage the conflict situations; they learnt more about motivation and they gained new tools for promoting volunteering projects and learning outcomes. Moreover they were able to identify skills and competences that volunteering projects had to offer and they were able to support volunteers’ learning and to help volunteers in recognizing their own skills and competences. They know how to set clear learning goals and they will know about different forms of volunteering.
Implementation phases and sharing their outcomes helped to develop critical and analytical thinking, reflection skills and create the opportunity to get to know different cultural perspectives of the same issue. Participants also experienced creating publications online, which were afterwards published and distributed.
The main difference between the first training course and the second is that the first was aimed at studying the needs of volunteers, the most volunteer activities and their unification. while the main topic of the second course was learning and obtaining specific skills while working as a volunteer, the ability to identify their skills and capabilities
