Ongoing debates 

There are on-going debates on the issues related to the competence of the employees dealing with volunteers. Organizations involved in voluntary activities express the need to train competent coordinators/managers in order to facilitate the management of voluntary activities. No training system for volunteers has been established in Lithuania. Training related to volunteer management is mostly provided by some organizations for their own members. There is also a lack of systematic volunteering quality assurance system.
