European Solidarity Corps: TOSCA – training and support for organisations active in the volunteering actions in the European Solidarity Corps

Training Course

20-24 June 2022 | Cyprus

The training activity aims to support and build up the capacities of organizations that actively participate in volunteering actions of the European Solidarity Corps, in order to ensure quality and impact in the respective projects.

Objectives and benefits of the training course:

  • Foster understanding, awareness and commitment to core quality criteria of the European Solidarity Corps
  • Build up competences on how to design and implement European Solidarity Corps projects with a view to quality
  • Ensure clarity and support on how the programme works formally: opportunities, guidelines, structures, priorities, rules, and procedures
  • Give space to participants to express burning issues and needs and offer support where possible
  • Foster a supportive community of organisations involved in the European Solidarity Corps
  • Awaken the learner within

Part of the course is an online preparatory phase:

Before the residential training course in Cyprus, there is a mandatory online preparatory/introductory phase. Its aims to introduce basic information in order to establish common grounds, as well as provide  a place where participants will start to form a community of learners and will carry out first homeworks and assessments of their own organisation, local community and own needs.

We are looking for participants who:

  • are involved in the  Volunteering Actions in European Solidarity Corps Programme.
  • are connected to organisations/institutions holding a Quality Label for Volunteering.
  • have a crucial role in and commitment to providing conditions for high quality activities, ensuring a positive impact of  Volunteering Activities within their community, creating learning opportunities within the organisation and for volunteers.

Team

The concept of the TOSCA is based on the experience of the network of National Agencies and established by a pool of trainers with the support of European Solidarity Corps Resource Centre.
 

The activity will be facilitated by two experienced trainers:

  • Agne Rapalaite (Lithuania)
  • Pieter Jan Uyttersprot (Belgium)
