The aim of this tool is to connect organisations that need volunteers with volunteers or people willing to volunteer.
The consortium has deployed the design and development of a web platform which serves both as an e-learning tool for the development/enhancement of the literacy, numeracy, digital and soft skills of adults necessary for volunteering, and also serves as an online space, where prospective adult volunteers are able to acquire a better understanding of what volunteering entails (opportunities, responsibilities etc.).
Through its semi-automatic matching feature, the web platform's matching tool serves as an innovative volunteer career guidance e-tool, allowing prospective adult volunteers to indicate their knowledge, skills, capacities, and preferences (type of volunteering, available time to allocate, location) and be matched to volunteering actions they can participate in. This matching tool is user-friendly, dynamic, and appealing, and it can be used via the project website as well.
