RIVER Newsletter 3Volunteering organisations experienced RIVER during the piloting phase
Helping children with their homework, creating a network for immigrants, working for a fire brigade or engaging in a cultural exchange project: Senior volunteers act in different settings with their main motivation to support others, to let them benefit from their experiences or just to stay active. What most of them are not aware of: They all make learning experiences by doing this; they improve their own personal competences. In the RIVER piloting senior volunteers were involved in this new validation method, to show them how they are learning through volunteering.
