This webinar analyses how volunteering provides a space for young people to navigate both the challenges they face and the responses they provide in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Young people all over the world have had an active role during the pandemic. They have responded to Covid-19 issues in creative and different ways and have played roles as leaders, activists and mediators in order to help the most marginalized and at risk communities.
However, youth have also been affected by Covid-19 issues in terms of education, employment, mental health and incomes.
In this context, the Institute for Volunteering Research at the University of East Anglia and the School of Political Science and Public Administration, East China University of Political Science and Law, organizes on 30 November (9.00-11.00), the webinar ‘Youth volunteering: participation in times of Covid-19’. The event aims to analyse how volunteering provides a space for young people to navigate both, the challenges they face and the responses they provide in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The webinar will be attended by a representation of youth volunteer-involving organizations, researchers of youth volunteering, volunteers and youth leaders, which will share thoughts and initiatives.
The event is free, but places are limited. If you are interested in taking part, you can register.
