Training for Mentors - online NET Activity

Training Course

29 November - 10 December 2021 | online, Greece

The role of mentors in European Solidarity Corps’ (ESC) volunteering projects and its impact on quality will be explored and highlighted in this course.

What is this course about: 

The role of mentors in European Solidarity Corps’ (ESC) volunteering projects and its impact on quality will be explored and highlighted in this course. 

Mentoring is a personal support measure for all participants in volunteering activities, as mentioned in the Guide and thus no young volunteer should remain unsupported or be provided with insufficient mentoring services. Competence development for mentors through training and peer-sharing is the main building block of this course.

This educational activity takes the form of an online training course, hosted in the ‘HOP Online Learning Platform’, which provides participants with a media-rich environment to further their learning. Videoconferencing through ‘ZOOM’ will supplement the learning experience.

This course builds on the success of the National Training for Mentors in Greece which took place in June 2020 and its consequent open online course which hosted more than 250 participants!

Aim of the course:

To enable competence development in mentoring through interactive online learning in view of improved quality within the European Solidarity Corps/Volunteering Programme.



  • To create a better understanding about the ‘Volunteering’ part of the European Solidarity Corps Programme and a shared view on the quality aspects of projects within it.
  • To offer space and support for the exchange of good practices and participants’ realities regarding mentoring within the Programme.
  • To develop participants’ mentoring competences in areas such as learning guidance and facilitation, communication and active listening, goal setting and monitoring thus improving their role and service quality.
  • To explore and share methods, tools and resources related to mentoring.

Participants’ profile:

Everyone with basic or advanced experience in the ‘European Solidarity Corps - Volunteering’ Programme (or its predecessor, European Voluntary Service) but with a great intention and motivation to develop their mentoring capacity or share their mentoring experience within the volunteering projects!
