Microvolunteering is still a relatively new concept but is changing the way third sector organisations are interacting with the wider public. This training course will help you better understand the concept of microvolunteering; what it is, how people do it and how you can set up easy micro-volunteering actions at your organisation. Previous participants of this training have said “I did not know anything about microvolunteering before. I left with a good idea of what microvolunteering is and how it can be used by young people and organisations” and it was great to see “how easy and accessible it can be”
