Volunteering and lifelong learning in Universities
The overall aim of the VALUE network is both to facilitate and stimulate the development of cooperation between universities and the volunteering sector in the delivery of University Lifelong Learning (ULLL) to volunteers and staff in volunteering organisations. VALUE is a project supported by Grundtvig and brings together 20 organisations representing universities and the volunteering sector from 13 European countries. They share a belief that volunteers’ development can play a key role in the development of European society as a whole. This large-scale partnership has been instrumental in sharing ideas and models of working together, and in exploring the potential for developing new university lifelong learning opportunities for both volunteers and staff in volunteering organisations.
Investigations focus on volunteers and the sophisticated learning, both formal and informal, that they experience in their volunteering work. VALUE is also developing a resource database which includes materials such as reports, case studies and bibliographic references and which will be of interest to organisations in both sectors.
