Title: Volunteers 4 ALL
Dates: 12– 18th August 2018
Place: Bansko, Bulgaria
Aims of the project:
The training course will be aiming to share best practices regarding youth work with migrants and for migrants coming to Europe and analyse the use of social media in each participant’s country. Indeed, youth workers and volunteers are often unpaid resources and have a various set of motivations to become volunteers.
Also we aim to reinforce ICT digital knowledge/literacy in crisis and risk communication, sharing best practices, understanding better the relation with volunteers, and better preparing youth workers and volunteers engaged in this field to improve the expected impacts, according to the European objectives.
-To give the possibility to NGOs to count on volunteers/young social media experts.
