Overall Context

The training conference will result in the creation of the Employee Volunteering European Network (EVEN). This network will only be open to EVEN Founding Members, volunteer-involving organizations and companies that have taken part in the EVEN training. Membership of EVEN and the knowledge and skills gained during the event will increase the capacity of volunteer-involving organizations to access funding and support from the wider variety of sources than they might currently have. It also enables employers to ensure maximum impact and develop quality EV schemes in partnership with knowledgeable and experienced actors from the voluntary sector.
