A recommended framework for volunteerism and compensation for young people.
This document aims to provide concise, practical guidance on volunteerism and compensation for young people. It is based on a document review of relevant internal policies on volunteering, compensation and reimbursement, and consultation meetings with CIVICUS and Restless Development staff and select partner INGOs that work with youth. Special consultation meetings were held with young leaders working with INGOs without the presence of supervisory staff to yield honest inputs. As this is a scoping document and not a piece of research, the consultation groups did not aim for representativeness, though the consultants adhered to all safeguarding and informed consent protocols in the meetings with young leaders.
