We are excited…
… to share first findings for the European Solidarity Programme with you!
During the Volunteering Conference, taking place in early October in Montenegro, we had the honor to present a first sneak peek into results from our RAY Monitoring surveys for the European Solidarity Corps programme. The conference was organised by the SALTO European Solidarity Corps and the SALTO South East Europe. Thank you for having us!
What is this all about?
Participants, volunteers and project team members of Solidarity Projects, Individual Volunteering and Volunteering Teams activities are currently surveyed by the RAY Network. The aim of this research project is to contribute to quality assurance and quality development in the implementation of the European Solidarity Corps, to strengthen evidence-based and research-informed policy development, and to sharpen the understanding of volunteering, working, learning, training and youth activism in the context of solidarity actions of young people.
