The training course Volunteerism and Social Inclusion involved many youth workers, mentor or potential volunteers and in general young people that want to work in the third sector and in local organisations. The public report is the result of this international training course in which the participants explored the topics relating to the EVS programme, that this year celebrates 20 years and in particular the role of the mentor, that guides the volunteer during his process of integration in the hosting community. Through presentations and non-formal activities, the participants discussed about the meaning of the word “volunteering” and they acquired competences on volunteering in the other countries. Indeed, the participants came from Nepal, Vietnam, Hungary, Italy, France and Kenya.
After the training course, 12 volunteers will be involved in different EVS mobility experiences in the countries mentioned above from January 2017 for 6 months.
The training course that took place in Palermo from 5th to 13th of September was organised within MPV – Moving People in Volunteering – a capacity building project co-founded by the Erasmus+ programme (Key Action 2, Capacity building in the youth of the field).
