The training course “Step by Step in mentoring of EVS” will aim to provide an introduction into mentoring and competence development for EVS mentors. This project is developed in the framework of the European Year of Volunteering aiming to support the quality of volunteering within the EVS programme and to provide an educational support for mentors. With developing the quality of mentoring the EVS programme will be more inclusive for volunteers with fewer opportunities for whom this training will have specially designed modules. In this regards the training course will contribute to the quality implementation of further EVS projects thus supporting youth participation and inclusion as permanent priorities of the Youth in Action programme.
Well-trained mentors are an asset for the youth organizations and their contribution will be visible in many aspects related to the support of youth participation on local and international level as well as proper strategy for supporting volunteers with fewer opportunities. In addition the training will encourage networking and cooperation among organizations in exchange best practices in EVS projects. The training will have an online stage for preparation and another online stage for follow-up activities.
The main activity will happen in Kumanovo, Macedonia in March 2012. A total of 20 participant-mentors will participate in the training process from 10 different European countries (Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, Montenegro, Romania, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Germany)
