Half a year has passed since VALLEY set out to develop approaches to promote volunteering among youngsters, especially for those who are neither in education nor training, and to offer tools for recognition of their learning through volunteering.

The project team has launched an online survey addressing both volunteering organisations and volunteers.
With the help of the surveys the team wants to get a deeper insight in the competences that can be acquired during volunteering services and if and how these are assessed and recognised.

The kick-off meeting for the project VALLEY – Validation System in Lifelong Learning Experiences of Youth Volunteering – was held on 11th and 12th May 2015 in Göttingen, Germany.
During the kick-off meeting, the partnership came together to plan the implementation of the project and to share their experiences of volunteering and methodologies to support the recognition and validation of skills and competences of learners.
The partnership is made up of six partners from six different European countries which include BUPNET GmbH (Germany), the Association for the Promotion of Women in Romania (Romania), BEMIS (UK), CESIE (Italy), die Berater Unternehmensberatungs GmbH (Austria) and EUROCIRCLE (France).
