The WPA Volunteering WG has been convened by the WPA President to carry out work related to the President’s 2020-2023 Action Plan, particularly capacity building. The WG started its work in December 2020 and will continue with the activities until the end of the triennium after which the WG’s existence may be continued should this be considered helpful to WPA’s programme.

 

WPA member societies are invited to consider the key documents about how the Volunteering platform works, including the roles and responsibilities of both host organisations and visiting trainers.
