Volunteers in the lead – Networking Event


Volunteers in the lead’ aims to provide a space for Chief Volunteers and young volunteers to meet, to network, and to share good practice and ideas both within and between the two groups. The event builds on networking events held at Regional Conferences when there was a clear desire to find opportunities for these important volunteers to share and mix with their peers.  The event is supported by the Youth in Action Programme of the European Union.

Although the European Year of Volunteering came to an end in December 2011, the work to ensure recognition, support and an enabling environment for volunteers and volunteer organizations continues.

During 2011, volunteers and volunteer-involving organizations across Europe worked together to develop the Policy Agenda for Volunteering (PAVE) which presents a number of recommendations for better volunteering policies towards the European Institutions, national governments, employers and trade unions and civil society.
