Join Forum & IAVE for ‘A New Generation of Volunteers as Changemakers’ Webinar

In 2023, as part of the preparations for the IVCO conference hosted by Yayasan Sukarelawan Siswa (YSS) Student Volunteers Foundation in Malaysia, IAVE and Forum collaborated to commission a Challenge Paper on youth volunteering. This paper, “A New Generation of Volunteers as Changemakers,” authored by Dr. Moses Okech with Professor Matt Baillie Smith and Dr. Bianca Fadel, is part of IAVE’s series on youth volunteering and framed the discussions at Forum’s IVCO 2023 conference. Following the conference, Forum issued the Kuala Lumpur Call to Action, urging volunteering organizations to better recognize and empower young people as changemakers.

Join us for the Forum/IAVE webinar on June 26, 2024, where a panel of academics, practitioners, and young volunteers will review the Challenge Paper and its impact at the IVCO conference. This webinar features key presenter Dr. Moses Okech, and will explore the challenges and opportunities in creating an environment where the next generation of volunteers can thrive.

The session will start at 12:00 pm BST and last for 90 minutes, including a 20-minute presentation by Dr. Okech, a panel discussion with young volunteers and practitioners, and an interactive Q&A session. Don’t miss this opportunity to contribute to the ongoing conversation about empowering young volunteers.
