IAVE 21st World Volunteer Conference Workshop 514: A Cooperative Relationship between NGOs and Universities
New models of cooperation between NGOs and universities can develop well-operated networks for undergraduates to volunteer their persoanl abilities. NGOs establish and implement the service programmes where as universities get together the volunteers. This partnership can be beneficial to create a shared responsibility between universities and NGOs in recruiting, organizing and training volunteers.
However, university volunteering can be passive in terms of frequency and purpose. Students either volunteer for credits and for gaining experience to secure job at graduation or they end up volunteering for something that they do not find meaningful and worthy of their time. This session will discuss the strategies on building appropriated networks focused on students' volunteering between social volunteer courses and social elfare centers within universities.
