Within the scope of volunteer development program -"Georgian
Volunteer", the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of
Georgia has organized a five-day training seminar, where the participants of
said seminar have officially received the status of “Volunteer of Georgia”.
The program aims at strengthening the institute of volunteerism, developing the
network across Georgia, increasing awareness of young people through
volunteering and encouraging their work.
Since 2015, a total of 552 volunteers have already
participated in the program, covering approximately 1435 programs across
Georgia, whilst forming 170 volunteer clubs.
Volunteers involved in the program will take part in various types of events
under the auspices of the Ministry, will be actively involved in the
international volunteer service, and will receive small funding for volunteer
projects from the Ministry. The best volunteers of the year will be revealed
and subsequently awarded with special gifts and certificates.
