The VALLEY partnership has created a web-based networking and learning platform for organisers of volunteering and young volunteers – the VALLEY Toolbox.

It provides a toolkit of materials related to working with NEETs, competence assessments and validation with LEVEL5. Further there are fora and chat rooms where practitioners can discuss and exchange their experiences.

Additionally there is a section for volunteers, which informs about the benefits of learning through volunteering and the VALLEY approach. Volunteers have the possibility to access the LEVEL5 platform to self-assess and rate their competence developments gained through volunteering.

Everybody interested can sign up for an account. Once you have logged in, use the course overview and select VALLEY. Then choose the respective link to enter the course – either for organisations or for volunteers.
