About us

Go 4 Sport Volunteering

Go 4 Sport Volunteering is an Erasmus+ Sport project implemented by sport clubs from 3 countries, Turkey, Croatia and Macedonia. Sport clubs, especially small clubs on local level such as all partners involved in the project, depend and rely on the involvement of volunteers in their work. Engaging volunteers in different positions whether as helping to run a club, as couches, members of secretariats or volunteers in organization of sport events on formal or informal bases is crucial to sustain the clubs in life. Recruiting new volunteers especially for more formal positions is always difficult.

Today the access for (potential) volunteers to sport volunteering is chaotic, whereas we as sport event organizers rarely find internal systematic way for finding, engaging and managing volunteers in a repeatable model that gives results. As all our sport events heavily rely on volunteers, solving these challenges is at the core of local clubs existence. How do we attract young people to become volunteers in our work, how do we engage them in sports clubs, how do we promote our areas as attractive for volunteers? One may ask themselves what skills I get from being a volunteer in a sport event organization. Can the answer to this question be our possible solution?

3 local sport clubs are involved as partners in this project. All the above mentioned questions in fact reflect our needs on local level. The answer to them will help us establish a solid model for attracting volunteers and managing them locally, will extend our network of cooperation, will allow us to see different structures on European level, and finally will help us develop tools for promotion and attracting volunteers in sports activities with underlining the skills they can developed through their engagements in sport activities.
