Validation of volunteer experiences


Guus Bremer

trainer, coach, board member Edos Foundation

Sharing the outcomes of our European projects on recognition and validation of volunteer experiences.

The session will focus on our knowledge and experiences with both the organisational and the individual part of the proces of validation of volunteer experiences. More specific we will present the outcomes of two of our projects: We will introduce a training course to help volunteer organisations design their own validation policy and how to implement this. We will also introduce our volunteer career guide what can be used by the individual volunteer to identify and document his learning process.

After an introduction with a framework of validation for volunteering and an overview of the projects where the materials of this workshop are the results from, we will start working with all materials to give the participants a good impression of the usability of it.
