The preparatory meeting
In February the prep team met in Vienna, to draft the objectives and agenda of this year’s VSS.
The topic of this years VSS is #AFSEffect: Volunteering for Impact. Volunteers are the backbone of most AFS activities and their commitment to making the local community a better place is outstanding. However, the complexity of today’s world with its multitude of communication channels and its overload of information make it difficult to obtain the momentum needed for social transformation. Through a series of workshops, this year’s VSS wants to empower volunteers with tools, best-practices, and innovative approaches in order to maximise their social impact online as well as offline!
Looking forward to seeing you in Austria!
