ABC ON VOLUNTEERING MENTORSHIP - NET activity
“ABC on Volunteering mentorship, Training Course” is an opportunity for volunteering hosting/sending organizations to train their mentors (or potential).
The idea comes from a detected problem in the EVS cycle; “On Arrival” and “midterm” EVS Trainings evaluations around Europe. Most of the volunteer’s mentors have a big mobility and not a long continuation in their role as mentors. Sometimes they are just volunteers with almost no link with the organisation and no awareness about Erasmus+ programme.
This situation make that the organizations have to change often the mentors, and they don’t have time, and sometimes knowledge about the competences required in an EVS mentor.
Most of them, already with experience, don’t know exactly which are their function, and many volunteer complain about the lack of support during their projects, not because their mentors are not nice people, just because are not prepared to help them in the learning process, Youthpass, conflict resolution, linguistic platform, etc.
