The training course "GIVE-Growth and Inspiration through Volunteering and Empowerment" addresses the need of promoting and supporting volunteer movement. The aim of our training course is providing the youth workers and active volunteers with tools and skills to work with and for young people. We'd like to review and enhance participant’s competences in volunteer management. It's important to give the participants ideas and partnerships for new volunteer activities and projects. The objectives of the training course include intercultural learning, development of pro-active approach of life and key competences which will inspire and empower the participants of the project. All of the above will increase the awareness of the participants about the importance of quality in volunteer management and their interest in new projects. The knowledge gained about volunteering and its promotion will be transferred to the partner oganizations, contributing to their sustainable development. More people will gain the information about the possibilities of active participation as well. The objectives of the training are: • To create a space for reflection on the meaning of volunteering in European, national, local and personal and professional contexts and create common standards on what a good quality volunteering means. • To increase participants’ awareness on the power and potential of volunteering as a tool of youth work, community development and inclusion tool for youngsters with fewer opportunities. • To promote partnership-building and networking between participants.
