In April 2017 the results from the survey on “Questionnaire about digital
competence of the Volunteers” were released in a report format. The main objective of the survey was to learn more about the needs of volunteers in the digital field and analyze the current situation at national and EU level. The resulting databases will be used to strengthen formal and non-formal learning for young people across Europe, to give the possibility to NGOs to count on volunteers/young ICT experts and to enhance association work, digital education, social inclusion, employability and empowerment of youth. All the results resource are collected and analyzed very carefully and the receive information will be used for building e-learning courses for the project (Intellectual Output 1). To those wishing to develop and improve their skills and practices in managing volunteers in the nonformal digital education space, will be available an open online course with video material. This report covers a wide range of volunteer opinions on questions regarding the digital education, and begins with a summary of the key findings drawn from the survey analysis and strategic recommendations.
The recommendations are followed by general conclusions and detailed findings. Specifically, we examine:
• The importance of the digital skills for the volunteers in their daily work;
• The skill gaps that the youth workers/ volunteers face in their workplace;
The level of public support, number of activities (university programmes/ NGOs workshops /private courses/public learning programmes) which ensures young people to be up-to- date with digital knowledge; and
• The best way for the youth workers/volunteer to improve their digital skills.
For the needs of volunteers/youth workers will be created 4 different e-Learning
modules on relevant topic.
I. Social Media skills
II. Project management
III. Programming and web development
IV. Digital Marketing (Mobile Marketing, Email Marketing, Content
