The closing event of this Erasmus+ funded project, which takes place on 18 November, will be an opportunity to learn about new practices and innovation and measuring the influence of volunteering on social inclusion.
‘Making it Matter’, the Erasmus+ co-funded project, is promoting and measuring the influence of volunteering as one of the key components of social inclusion and integration of disadvantaged young people.
The project will enable the creation of methods and indicators for impact measurement that will help volunteer involving organisations to understand the key benefits, and shape the most inclusive volunteer programs.
During the closing event of the project, which takes place on 18 November 2020 (12.30- 14.30) in Brussels and online, will be presented the focus research report, which has been developed by 6 partner countries: Croatia, Denmark, Ireland, Slovenia, Belgium and Germany.
The main objective of the Focus Research Report is to give an overview of existing EU and national policies and practices that support the inclusion of disadvantaged youth through volunteering.
The project has been developed by Volunteer Ireland, Centre for European Volunteering, Volunteer Centre Osijek, Frivilligcentre & Selvhjælp Danmark, Bundesnetzwerk Bürgerschaftliches Engagement and Slovenska filantropija.
