2. Voluntary Activities

2.6 Quality assurance

Last update: 29 February 2024

According to Law on Volunteerism (Art.21), monitoring of the implementation of the provisions of the law is responsibility of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy. The inspection is performed by the State Labor Inspectorate. National registry of organizations offering volunteering opportunities is lacking. The organizer of volunteering is obliged to keep records for the volunteering of all volunteers if not; it will be forced on penalty fees according to the law on volunteerism.

Monthly reports, on-the-spot visits and direct interviews are the mechanisms used for collecting young volunteers' feedback on their volunteering experiences. Republic of North Macedonia strives to improve the process of collecting quality and quantity data regarding volunteerism and the implementation of the legal framework due to its scarcity. Currently there is no publicly accessible, nationwide process that periodically evaluates the quality of volunteer work provided from organizers of volunteer work, or measures the satisfactory level of the volunteers. There is only a Registry of Volunteers in the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, an internal document that collects data for all volunteers that have signed a voluntary contract with the organizer of voluntary work.
