Needs Assessment Report

This booklet covers the first phase of the project, with a total duration
of two years.

(young people, volunteers
and youth workers) in order to understand their needs and how
volunteering is seen and perceived in partner countries.

In order to have a clear idea of how volunteering is
regulated, each partner has created a desk research, analysing the
legal and institutional framework on the issue in question.
Subsequently, 20 focus groups were realized (4 for each country).
Simultaneously X video interviews were conducted in each country.

The interviewees, mostly former volunteers in the same organizations,
told their story, highlighting the positive effects of volunteering
and how this experience has enriched their lives.
The focus group and interviews gave us the information needed to
create a questionnaire that has been spread for 6 months, reaching
186 people.
