Volunteer Resumé

You will be asked several questions about yourself during this e-learning programme (think about motivation, skills etc.). The answers you'll give, will automatically be filled into your Volunteer Resumé, which will be available to download when you have fully completed the course.

This Volunteer Resumé can be shared with your local project coordinator. You increase the chance that you will be offered work that matches your skills, and it will help the local coordinator to quickly get to know you! 

Tips on taking the course

  • If possible, follow this e-learning programme on a laptop or desktop. This works better than on your mobile. 
  • Monitor the progress you make in the lessons, in the progress bar on the right side of the screen.
  • In this e-learning programme we use the word 'volunteer'. Wherever we use 'volunteer' you might read 'intern', because this e-learning programme is just as useful for internships abroad!
  • Any questions or comments about the course? You can contact us by clicking the 'questionmark' at the bottom of each lesson!
