Levol-app, a European partnership to improve the voluntary sector
“Levol-app” is a 28-month strategic partnership funded by the Erasmus+ programme. Its aim is to gather organisations who focus on the development of volunteer management programmes together to share and develop best practice.
Coordinated by Pista Mágica – Associação (Portugal) with the support of Neo Sapiens (Spain), Associazione di Promozione Sociale Futuro Digitale (Italy), Platforma dobrovolnickych centier a organizacii (PDCO) (Slovakia) and the Birmingham voluntary Service Council (BVSC) (United Kingdom), the objective of this initiative is to work together and exchange good practices related to the training of those responsible for the creation and coordination of volunteer management programmes (at local or international level).
To achieve this, partner organisations will create an online platform in five languages to support NGOs to improve their volunteer management in order to better engage volunteers as active citizens and improve the competences and professional skills of volunteer managers.
The project takes place between 01/10/2017 to 31/01/2020. The first transnational activity of the project will be a meeting that will join representatives from all the partner organisations from the 16/01/2018 to the 19/01/2018 in Logroño (Spain) to establish the specific learning goals that the project materials will have which are to be created.
The meeting will also be used to share the results of the research that partner organisations are currently carrying out in each partner country, to get to know more about the sector needs and invite volunteer organisations on the future phases of the project.
