Guidelines - Responsible Exchange and Volunteering 2018

CHAPTER 1: Guidelines as a Resource Tool Kit for practitioners in youth exchange and volunteering As an organisation practicing in the field of youth exchange and international volunteering, you are assuming a set of roles and responsibilities that require mechanisms for implementation and resources to fulfill your duties in a responsible, legal and meaningful way. As an exchange practitioner you must clearly understand your position in the exchange landscape, adhere to legislative requirements and act in a way that enables youth to engage in meaningful and relevant exchanges and volunteering.

Purpose – why are you assuming these roles and responsibilities? Practice – are you knowledgeable about the detail required to practice in a responsible way and do you have the resources to achieve your purpose? Partnerships – are you engaging in the exchange landscape as an equal partner or are you a recipie nt to someone else’s purpose and practice?
