Information providers

According to the Youth Strategy 2015-2020, the Ministry of Youth and Sports was responsible for implementing the priority on development of young volunteering. However, no clear and concrete task have been established for the Ministry and raising awareness about youth volunteering opportunities was mainly realised through small projects granted by the Ministry and implemented by NGOs.

 

There are no State-funded national and/or regional volunteer centres or agencies working in Romania.

 

At local level, in some municipalities, volunteer centres were opened, promoting volunteering at local level and doing matching of volunteers for local institutions. Their work, however, is not systematic.

 

Key initiatives

A public campaign was carried out by the national TV station (TVR) in 2014, during the debates on the Law on Volunteering. As the campaign was made and broadcasted by the national TV station there was no specific target group addressed. The campaign was meant for the general public.
