The VSS is organised by AFS volunteers for AFS volunteers to learn together, share best practices in AFS volunteer work and to exchange tools, tips and tricks in an engaging and fun environment. It also helps create a strong community between international and local volunteers from different countries.
The 4-days programme includes plenary sessions, workshop sessions, reflection groups, a community project, social activities and other elements.

This year’s VSS will take place in Cieszyn, Poland and will focus on the theme of Volunteer based Youth Work for Active Citizenship.

Volunteer Based Youth Work for Active Citizenship

Active citizenship and intercultural learning are fundamental for democracy to thrive in culturally diverse societies, therefore as AFSers, we have an important role to play in educating ourselves and others on how to be a democratic citizen.
