Forthcoming policy developments 

There is no forthcoming policy developments regarding specific law, strategy and/or programme on youth volunteering, but the debates on the youth strategy post 2021, presented in section 1.9 focus on the development of youth volunteering as a key element of the youth policy.

Ongoing debates 

A coalition of youth organisations and organisations working of volunteers of all ages prepares amendments to the Volunteering Law and a Strategy for Volunteering in Romania, with support from the Active Citizens Fund, supported by EEA Grants and Erasmus Plus.

The project of the Coalition for Volunteering is implemented by four organisations with experience in working with volunteers - Bethany Social Services Foundation, Community Support Foundation Bacau, Pro Vobis - National Resource Center for Volunteerism Romania and Cluj-Napoca Volunteer Center. Through this project the coalition intends to resume the process of norming the law and to complete it with application methodology, relevant documents and set of forms. Citizens and NGO consultations on the existing needs are planned. The secondary legislative package obtained will be promoted among decision makers and will be submitted to the relevant ministries.
