W4C partners continue cooperation enhancing volunteering in sport

Partners of the Erasmus+ project Work for a Cause, Serve for Sport (W4C-S4S) met online on January 21, discussing the project findings so far, and planning ahead.

After launching an international survey on volunteering in November last year, preliminary analysis of the responses is being done, as well as gathering good practice examples of volunteering in sport across the partner countries, and reviewing the legislation and practical arrangements in the field.

Partners are now defining the educational content of the programme, which will be made publicly available.

Planning the educational modules

The main goal of the W4C project is to educate and equip volunteers for participating in the organization of national and international sporting events also to equip volunteers for assisting people with disabilities in sporting events thus fostering social inclusion, equal opportunities in sport.

The project is lead by the City of Zagreb (CRO), partnering with the Municipality of Almussafes (ESP), Society for the Development of Voluntary Work Novo Mesto (SLO), Institute for Social Innovation and Cohesion (GRE), GEA - Social Cooperative Society (ITA) and the EUSA Institute (SLO). The two-year project is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
