On December 13th and 14th, 2017, our representative of COO Validus, Šeila Mustafić Petrović, participated in the first module of education on volunteer management. Education was held within the project “On Waves of Volunteering – Infrastructure for Strong and Associate Communities” carried out by the Volunteer Center Zagreb in partnership with the Croatian Center for Volunteering Development, the Zagor Network, the ACT Group, the Local Democracy Agency of Sisak, the IKS Association and the Old Town persons Centar (Zagreb). The project is funded from the European Social Fund and co-financed by the Office for NGOs. The aim of the project is to contribute to the developing of a society in which volunteering represents the driving force of active, responsible and human communities and strongly contributes to social and economic development.
Education will be carried out according to the National Volunteer Management Curriculum and the goal is to educate and strengthen volunteer organizers for volunteer management and for the quality implementation of volunteer programs.
