About the project:

Strategic mentoring was a project about sharing best practices about mentoring of EVS volunteers and empowerment of mentors itself. In order to achieve the task, we decided that most efficient way was to organize two stage training where representatives from partner organizations, who hosted EVS volunteers, and ideally exchanged volunteers among themselves. In which we for most part succeeded, because call for partners for this event was aimed mostly on reliable partner EVS organizations.
