The Conference aims to:
- make the participants understand the landscape of volunteering in the country and how it relates to the role of the academe (all about the bigger community);
- involve them in examining fundamental and emerging issues about volunteering by the academe and to share good practice and case studies (all about the academe and volunteering); and
- help them create a community of practice (COP), and build a stronger voluntary sector that recognizes the impact and value of volunteering (all about building alliance and popularizing).
Expected participants to this activity are the key actors from the academe, the voluntary sector and other players who have a stake in volunteering for development and representatives from colleges, universities and other institutions of learning from all parts of the country.
Participation of both public and private schools shall be subject to the no-disruption-of-classes policy as stipulated in DepEd Order No. 9, s. 2012 entitled Instituting Measures to Increase Engaged Time-on-Task and Ensuring Compliance Therewith.
