Existence of a National Strategy

There is no stand alone National Strategy on Youth Volunteering in Romania. Youth volunteering is one of the key areas of the Youth Strategy, as presented in the dedicated section on National Youth Strategy. The main elements concerning volunteering in the Youth Strategy are focusing on informing the public and young people about volunteering, raising awareness and support for youth volunteering and improving the certification system of voluntary work.


Scope and contents

For volunteering the specific objectives of the strategy are:

  1. Create an environment that fosters volunteering in Romania
  2. Improve the system of volunteer work certification and public recognition
  3. Raise public awareness of the importance of volunteer engagement


Responsible authority

The responsible authority for the promotion of youth volunteering is the Ministry of Youth and Sports. However, in order to better define the certification and recognition system for voluntary work the Ministry of Youth and Sports has to work closely with the National Authority for Certification


Revisions/ Updates

No updates have been made to the present Youth Strategy.
