I have filled in and submitted the Volunteer’s Form (VF). Which are the next steps?
You will receive a link to the file containing the available tasks in the current semester per e-mail. There you will be able to choose those you would like to undertake.
The ASVS will contact you to provide you more information regarding the tasks you are going to undertake. If you consent to undertake them, a meeting with the SwD you will be supporting will be arranged.
That first meeting will take place in the Department/Faculty of the SwD. The conditions of participation in the voluntary support program will be mentioned in detail during that meeting. In case the SwD will be supported by a group of volunteers, the tasks undertaken by each of them will be specified. After that, you will sign the Voluntary Support Agreement, which defines the framework of your collaboration.
During your collaboration with the SwD you will send feedback to the ASVS every week (Cf. Collaboration Journal). If any problem arises, the ASVS will seek a solution.
At the end of the semester you will fill in some brief evaluation forms in order to evaluate your experience from your collaboration with the SwD.
You must submit the VF every semester on your own initiative.
If you do not wish to participate anymore in the voluntary support program, you will have to fill in the Volunteer’s Withdrawal Form.
