Marketing Text Material for volunteer centres and volunteer involving organizations on how to work with unemployed volunteers (it can be used within the training, but also as a manual or a guide for organizations that are willing to work with unemployed volunteers but do not know how to start and what to take into consideration.)
This publication is one of the significant outcomes of the project. It is the methodology for volunteer centers and volunteer organizations willing to involve unemployed people into their volunteer programs.
The aim of this publication is to explain specifics of the volunteer management related to unemployed volunteers and to motivate volunteer centers and volunteer involving organizations to engage this target group into their activities.
This methodology is based on the experience gained from the implementation of the volunteer program for unemployed people carried out in Volunteer Centre in Usti nad Labem in the Czech Republic (transfer of the "Welcome" methodics) as well as on the experience of volunteer centers in Banska Bystrica, Košice, Prešov, and Nitra and Platform of Volunteer Centers and Organizations involved into the implementation of the VOLWEM Project.
