András F. Tóth and Emese Farkas, the leaders of the Volunteer Centre Foundation, shared their experiences gained from organizing more than a hundred corporate volunteering programmes. “During the almost 10 years of operation of the Foundation we have encountered almost every trap and discovered almost every criterion of success of the corporate and non-profit co-operation. We will run an interactive workshop about these criteria collected during our practice, where participants also have the opportunity to influence the discussion by giving their experiences and asking questions. We will focus on Hungarian corporate volunteering trends in the light of the European Year of volunteering.”
