The Multiplier Event held on October 14, 2023, in Braga, Portugal, marked a significant milestone for the “Safe and Informed Volunteering” project organized by FAJUB. This gathering brought together a diverse group of 56 participants, representing various sectors crucial to the success of volunteer initiatives, such as youth workers, adult educators, NGO representatives, and volunteer coordinators.
The primary purpose of the event was to serve as a dynamic platform for FAJUB to share and disseminate the outcomes and achievements of the “Safe and Informed Volunteering” project. This included showcasing the impact of their initiatives, highlighting successful strategies, and presenting any innovative solutions developed throughout the project’s duration. The engagement of stakeholders in this context was crucial, as it fostered collaboration and created a space for dialogue among individuals with different expertise and perspectives in the realm of volunteering.
One of the key highlights of the event was the opportunity to test the project’s innovative application. This application, developed as part of the initiative, is designed to play a pivotal role in supporting and guiding prospective volunteers. Its purpose is to provide essential information about potential volunteering opportunities, ensuring that individuals have access to comprehensive details about the locations where they can contribute their time and skills.
By testing the application during the Multiplier Event, FAJUB sought valuable feedback from participants, including youth workers, educators, NGO representatives, and volunteer coordinators. This iterative process of testing and refining the application not only demonstrated the project’s commitment to technological innovation but also ensured that the final product would be user-friendly and effective in meeting the needs of both volunteers and the organizations they serve.
In essence, the Multiplier Event served as a catalyst for collaboration, information sharing, and technological advancement within the realm of volunteering. It not only showcased the achievements of the “Safe and Informed Volunteering” project but also reinforced FAJUB’s dedication to creating a safer and more informed volunteering environment for individuals seeking to make a positive impact in their communities.
