We Are Looking for a Volunteer – Preparation for the NGO Market 2011
April 7, 2011, Prague
A seminar took place on April 7, 2011 in Prague as a part of the preparations for the fair of non-profit organizations – the NGO Market 2011. It was designed for representatives of the organizations that later took part in the fair as exhibitors. It also encouraged recruitment of volunteers who would take part in the various organizations’ projects and activities. The seminar provided a legal and statistical framework on the subject of volunteering while emphasizing the importance of volunteers in the non-profit sector. The participants along with the lecturer Jiří Tošner, President of the civic association Hestia, discussed general issues concerning volunteering as well as their specific experience from their own organizations.
The seminar also drew attention to the necessity for participating NGO’s to prepare for contact with people who would attend the NGO Market and who might be interested in volunteering. In this manner, both the organizations and potential volunteers would benefit from their participation in the fair.
The seminar took place in the premises of the US Business School Prague which we would like to thank.
