European partnership to improve the volunteer sector

Organisations from 5 different countries work together on this transnational project focused on covering the demand that volunteering organisations have of new tools to set volunteer management programmes and train those responsible of coordinating them.

“Levol-app” is a 28-month strategic partnership funded by the Erasmus+ programme under its Key Action 2 for the development of VET that aims to gather organisations from different contexts but working on the development of programmes to train volunteering organisations and managers. 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 of the creation and coordination of volunteer management programmes (at local or international level). To achieve this, partner organisations will create an online platform on 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.
