What do we learn in Workcamps?

LOGO-DEFINITIVO-900x241“I’VE” is a documented system to speak out about competences.

Can you imagine it? Assessing volunteers’ competences was never that easy, funny and sustainable… thanks to the I’VE Outputs and a motivated facilitator from yours!

“Dunno …”

Many volunteers do not have an answer to this question. Or rather, they have never thought of it!

In fact learning in the workcamps is often not an intentional process, but we know that the concepts of nonformal and informal learning can also refer to volunteering. Someone talks about of “lifelong learning”, someone about “active citizenship”… for sure every life experience teaches us something.

It is granted that living a collective experience in an international context, might represent a turning point or a time of tremendous growth.From COCAT

We know this because we have seen many volunteers for whom even short-term workcamp experiences have changed their lives.

What remains, then, once back from our experiences of international voluntary service? A certificate of participation, of course. Vivid and unforgettable memories, true.pce

But we wondered whether it is easy to represent what we have learned to those who have never participated in a volunteer project abroad as we did.

No, it is not easy at all.

At a job interview, for example, we know how to value our commitment as volunteers?
