Volunteering as a Tool for Roma Youth Participation

Volunteering as a Tool for Roma Youth Participation – A Guide for Recruiting, Supporting Young Roma Volunteers, and Maintaining Active Engagement

This guide includes useful tips and ideas for youth workers as well as organisations on how to involve and support young people with fewer opportunities in volunteering and in local and international youth work.

The guide includes chapters on organizational responsibilities to create space and opportunities for young (Roma) people for volunteering, how to recruit and support a volunteer but also how to keep volunteers engaged in a long-term, especially after the service.

This guide was prepared as part of the Roma Youth Voices project, coordinated by Phiren Amenca and funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020) of the DG Justice, European Commission.
