Working with volunteer organizations

We provide trainings, consultations, and supervisions in the field of volunteer management. It is important for us to know that our volunteers are satisfied in the organizations they are active in and that the organizations are satisfied with them.

We know which organizations need volunteers at the moment. There are more than 250 organizations from Bratislava and its region registered in our database. Besides this, we post current volunteer offers on our website, we teach organizations how to work with volunteers, and organise workshops, trainings, consultations and supervisions. We also create volunteer programmes tailored to your needs.

How to do it:

  • Organizations can place offers for volunteers on our website. However, it is important to register first. After the registration we will contact the organization by e-mail to arrange an introductory meeting where we will clarify our mutual expectations, type of volunteer work and volunteer offers which the organization is planning to post in the BVC database. This meeting is a consultation of the organization’s volunteer programme and is also a requirement for posting volunteer offers on our website. You can register an organization here.
  • If you have already established cooperation with volunteers but you need an advice, or perhaps you have some problems concerning changes or creating an entirely new programme, you can contact us. Consultations will help you answer your questions about: volunteer programme planning, duties of coordinators, searching for and recruiting of volunteers, contracts and insurance for volunteers, funding, ethical codex, motivating and evaluating volunteers and volunteer programmes, rewarding volunteers, their evidence and general coordination. Contact us and arrange a consultation meeting either in a personal, phone or e-mail form. We will be happy to help you.
  • If you are only beginning, we recommend you to complete one of our volunteer management trainings. During particular trainings you will learn how to plan a volunteer programme, define duties of a coordinator, we will focus on searching, recruiting and training volunteers, making contracts and insurances, expanses, ethical codex, motivating and evaluating volunteers and volunteer programme, rewarding volunteers, their evidence and general coordination.
