DIVE training: Diversity in European Volunteering, Feb 13th-18th 2018, Sofia, Bulgaria

About the Training

European volunteering is far from being accessible to all young people in Europe. Three European youth networks, JEF, ESN and AEGEE are sharing this diagnosis and coming together, supported by YES Forum, a platform of organisations working with and for young people with fewer opportunities, to work on the challenges of diversity and inclusion in European volunteering.

The project aims at identifying the barriers hindering the full participation of certain young people as volunteers and at collectively reflecting on how to take them down. The project includes 3 training for members of our associations interested in reaching out to a different audience than the 'usual suspects' (from rural areas, disadvantaged backgrounds, with no higher education).

Participants will identify and reflect on the barriers created by our activities and our organisations. They will then build together the tools to overcome them by exchanging best practices and by learning from experts in the field of inclusion.
