Outstanding Volunteer Project
Recent WYSE Travel Confederation research has highlighted the unique benefits international volunteer projects have on communities around the world – be it environmental, humanitarian, social or educational. The Outstanding Volunteer Project award looks to recognise and showcase outstanding volunteer projects/programmes in this growing industry segment. Key characteristics for winners of this award include an emphasis on sustainability, responsibility and best practices.
Open all organisations (senders/receivers) in the volunteering industry can participate. An organisation can submit multiple entries for the award. Entries must be in English.
The judging panel evaluates nominations on the following criteria:
- Financial and environmental sustainability
- Promotion of civil society
- Innovation or best practices
- Results/achievements of the project/programme
- Personal development of volunteers
