In the framework of the project eSkills for Volunteers, on 14th of June 2018, the President of Asociación Projuven, Mr. Francesco Ruberto, presented the “Digital Tools for the Management of Volunteers eBook” to a group of youth workers in Malaga, Spain. The eBook aims to give a clear overview on the current challenges and opportunities as well as to share best practices in the field from Italy, Portugal, Romania and Spain.
During the event all the four chapters of the eBook were discussed and particular attention was given to the various aspects related to the way NGOs are using digital tools to manage volunteers, how they empower youth workers and volunteers to raise their e-skills, what are the preferred instruments in different communities and, based on these, how can be formulated recommendations towards various stakeholders. The eBook is available in English but also in Spanish, Romanian, Portuguese and Italian language.
The dissemination event ended up with a presentation of “The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition” of European Commission which brings together Member States, companies, social partners, non-profit organisations and education providers, who take action to tackle the lack of digital skills in Europe. Moreover, the Erasmus plus programme and all its opportunities for international mobility for young people were presented to the audience.
