The need to implement EVOLVE project emerged from the current economic recession, which has forced local authorities and civil society to intensify community relief activities with a social welfare character; activities, which are supported/facilitated to a large extent by volunteers. However, voluntary work is rarely well organized in terms of effective volunteer recruitment and local authorities/organizations and civil society organizations offering social welfare activities are often lacking in trained and skilled volunteers.
EVOLVE aims to promote the cooperation between local authorities and NGOs/CSOs, to address the issue of non-organised management of adult volunteers for social welfare activities, as well as the issue of adult volunteers not being motivated to participate in volunteer activities due to their lack of proficiency in literacy, numeracy and problem solving in technology-rich environments.
The above will be achieved through the implementation of the following activities:
- Capacity Building course
- Web platform for Capacity Building and Volunteer Guidance
- Comprehensive Capacity Development Methodology of Adult Volunteering for Local Social Welfare
