Global Volunteering Cycle

INEX’s Global Volunteering Cycle is an educational volunteer programme that guides volunteers step by step from preparation, project participation to follow-up activities, and enables them to have a comprehensive volunteer experience.

The cycle consists of 4 parts

  • Information session for new volunteers
  • Selection of projects and application process
  • Pre-departure training
  • Follow-up meeting

All parts of the cycle are open to everyone who is interested in volunteering and you can participate in any part regardless the order. However, the pre-departure training is compulsory for all INEX’s volunteers going to projects in Africa, Asia or Central and Latin America.

The pre-departure training is a crucial part of the cycle and enables participants to set their volunteer experience in a bigger picture. It is based on the methods of critical thinking, analysis of North-South relationship, and offers space for realizing one’s own identity.

The training aims at developing participants’

  • critical thinking,
  • self-reflection,
  • media literacy,
  • knowledge of global education
