Dear friends, once our looking-for-new-volunteers campaign was over, we organized a starter training for the new comers. These brave new volunteers will take part in the extremely difficult activity of helping unprivileged youth. In spite of the summer heats there were many enthusiasts. They went through several steps before being approved (filling in a questionnaire, interview) and soon will be ready to meet the youths and help them be independent in life.
We are very happy – for the first time our new small office was sooo full!
During two days we spoke about effective communication, volunteer work, the specifics of youths who grew up without parental care and Bulgarian laws that regulate social services.
This training is part of the “Establishing Volunteers Network in support of Underprivileged Youth” financed under the NGO support program of the financial mechanism of the European Economic Area framework program for the 2009-2014 period.
