European Regional Development Fund
The project’s aim is to connect the individuals and the volunteer centers internationally.
The Volunteer Project was dreamed up and implemented between September 2017 and April 2019 by Budapest-based Subjective Values Foundation, Corvinus University of Budapest, and Slovakian TAMDEM, n.o. The aim of the partners was to develop cross-border cooperations between individuals and organizations employing volunteers.
One of the key elements of the project was the development and implementation of the training program, which involved the successful training of 43 young people, making them capable of fulfilling the role of a middle-level volunteer coordinator. The practice-focused training was supplemented by an e-learning training material, developed within the project, to help the participants deepen the knowledge they acquired.
A bilingual online platform was created to connect volunteers with volunteering opportunities, which also served as a basis for the volunteer exchange pilot program within the project. The pilot enabled 22 youngsters to take advantage of cross-border opportunities and volunteer at various Slovakian and Hungarian events.
Mentoring workshops were organized for 5 NGOs and other organizations employing volunteers in the border region. These capacity-building workshops supported the development of their activities and enabled the collection and exchange of good practices. To further promote capacity-building, 8 expert studies were commissioned to provide an overview of the background and know-how of the region, which is a novel endeavor locally.
Besides creating the foundations for and supporting the professional activities, a large-scale promotional campaign was carried out to promote volunteering and non- profit activities in the region. The project culminated in a professional conference and press event to share the experiences gathered during the 3 years of the project with the public, in order to further deepen positive attitudes towards volunteer employment.
