The training will explore the concept of transformative learning and how volunteering can transform our understanding of ourselves; our belief systems; and influence our behaviour/lifestyle choices.
Volunteering offers vital support to people in need, worthwhile causes and the community. However the benefits of volunteering can be as important to the volunteer. It is now recognized that volunteering can reduce stress, combat depression, provide an opportunity to be mentally and physically stimulated and provide a sense of purpose. Dedicating time to volunteering can help expand social networks and boost social skills. It can also present opportunities to develop important skills used in the workplace, such as, teamwork,communication skills, problem solving, project planning, task management and organisation. The benefits of volunteering are often underdeveloped and not maximized during or after a volunteering experience under Erasmus+. This training will support participants to develop these aspects of their own projects.
Overall objectives of this training:
This training will also provide the opportunity for meeting potential project partners and sharing best practice.
