On 8th May, the JOIN Volunteering & Youth Working Group met in Valletta for a face-to-face meeting. Representatives from Austria, England, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the JOIN Board and the JOIN Office were hosted by St John Malta.
The next topic of discussion was the Volunteer Swap program for 2022. Following the pause of two years caused by the pandemic, JOIN volunteers are welcome to apply again.
In the second session, the latest activities of the ‘Charity Cooperation Group of the Orders of St John’ were presented. The working group also examined the different national regulations and policies related to the participation of young people and youth groups in Volunteer Swap activities, and the participants agreed to encourage the international exchange of youth groups.
