Explore Global Volunteering Standard Platform

We have improved the Global Volunteering Standard Platform for you: See what’s new

To coincide with International Volunteer Day 2022, we have re-launched our Global Volunteering Standard Platform and its tools and resources pages, including the Standard, Self-Assessment Tool, and Resource Library. We are delighted to announce that all of these are now open for you to explore and interact with.

We designed the Platform to help you put the Global Volunteering Standard into practice. The Platform is a free resource for organisations that work through volunteers to achieve sustainable development. We hope that the Platform will help strengthen your organisation’s impact with practical tools and information on its journey of continuous learning and improvement.

Take a look below to see what’s new and enjoy exploring! Your feedback is welcome.

WHAT’S NEW ON THE GLOBAL VOLUNTEERING STANDARD PLATFORM

Global Volunteering Standard Platform

We have reviewed and redesigned the Platform and its pages. The new Platform landing page is now easier than ever to navigate and find all its tools and resources in one handy place.

Global Volunteering Standard Page

The Global Volunteering Standard is currently available to download in the following languages: عربى (Arabic), Deutsch (German)EnglishEspañol (Spanish)Français (French)Português (Portuguese)Русский (Russian). Thai, Swahili, Mandarin and Hebrew versions are coming soon, so watch this space.

The Self-Assessment Tool

The Self-Assessment Tool allows you to measure the performance of your organisation against the Global Volunteering Standard. To help you with your self-assessment process, we have added more supportive information including Common Questions and an email support address. We have also reviewed and simplified the process itself, to make it smoother and easier for you to follow.

Organisational accounts: To help with collaboration on the platform, multiple people can link their accounts to their organisation, and you can also add multiple country offices under your organisation so that a head office can see each office’s self-assessment.

The Resource Library

Explore the most extensive global collection of international good practice resources developed for and by organisations that work with volunteers. The Resource Library consists of over 100 resources from organisations all over the world. If you would like to include any of yours in this growing collection, please contact globalvolunteeringstandard@forum-ids.org.

Global Volunteering Standard Events page

We have added a brand new page dedicated to Forum’s events focused on the Global Volunteering Standard, such as Support Workshops and more.
