The Volunteer project aims to support NGOs in the Hungarian-Slovakian CB region and to promote CB civil society and identity. Volunteering is one of the cornerstones of a healthy civil society, therefore our project's main goal is to launch CB capacity building and network building focused on volunteering. The project will improve the level of CBC between citizens and organisations employing volunteers through the promotion of social participation and mutual exchange of experiences, and by assisting organisations in widening their CB volunteer base and in creating joint volunteer exchange programs. During the implementation of the project we will assess the NGOs’ needs and cross-border capacities, and the volunteering potentials in the HU-SK CB region. We will strengthen NGOs, public institutions and other organisations employing volunteers in the CB region via capacity building that will include workshops, training sessions, and the sharing of best practices; and also via training coordinators with the aim of building a CB network of midlevel coordinators to manage volunteers in the region. We will develop a bilingual online platform to connect volunteers with volunteering opportunities, while we will also develop an e-learning training program for NGOs and coordinators. We will promote volunteer exchange opportunities and related network building in the CB region through a volunteer exchange pilot with participants who will be actively involved in CB volunteer exchange, and by mentoring NGOs to prepare them for working with volunteers. We will carry out a campaign that will promote volunteering and participation in CB nonprofit activities. This will include a documentary film, a social media campaign and a TV campaign. Our activities will result in strengthening CB cohesion and cooperation, improving mutual understanding and rapprochement, creating a shared CB identity and empowering the nonprofit sector in the CB region.
