What is V-CALC

Project Description

The Volunteering Impact Measurement Training in Europe (V- CALC) project is a two-year partnership between six organisations from five European countries: UK, Belgium, Spain, Albania and Croatia.

The V-CALC project was developed to address the issue that there is currently no methodology which measures the impact of volunteer involvement across nations. The V-CALC project will develop a user-friendly online platform, which will gather data about volunteer involvement and volunteers. Volunteer managers and coordinators will be trained during the V-CALC project, on how to use the online platform.

The V-CALC project aims to develop a robust and reliable methodology to gather data about the impact of volunteering, types of volunteering and the demographic and motivations of volunteers. The V-CALC platform also aims to measure the impact of volunteering on building social and human capital and on promoting common European values.

The data gathered from the V-CALC online platform will be used to inform policy nationally and cross-nationally and aims to make the contribution of volunteer involvement to civic society more visible across Europe.

About You

A place where we can share our experience with other associations and with our fellow volunteers.

The site where we can really expose all our actions in the world of volunteering.

All NGOs on a website, where we can give our opinion and report how we help others.

I am very happy to always help and serve our community and now to be able to share it.

I feel very fortunate to share my data so we can grow our association.

They recommended it to me a few days ago and in a while I was able to share years of volunteering.
