Team Leader: Senada Šelo Šabić, PhD

VOLPOWER studies how volunteering can contribute to youth interaction and empowerment. It investigates the impact of volunteering through politics, geography, mobility, and creativity on community building and integration. The consortium consists of seven European academic institutions, and the project coordinator is The Glasgow Caledonian University. The project is funded by the European Union’s AMIF (Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund). The project will select young people volunteering in the fields of sports and arts from European countries participating in the project and provide them with a three-day training on leadership, management, conflict resolution and other relevant interpersonal skills as well as raising digital literacy. The project will also conduct a survey on volunteering in all countries from which the project partners come. An integral part of the project is scientific research on volunteering and other aspects of encouraging the successful integration of third-country nationals (with a focus on young people) into democratic European societies. The project aims to raise the level of interest of young people in volunteering, to create conditions for the sustainability of volunteering, and to build dynamic and constructive relationships between the domicile population and third-country nationals who integrate into new societies. The impact of the project will make it possible to build a community between EU citizens (EUN) and third-country nationals (TCN) through volunteering.
