PHILCV CONSORTIUM'S ENGAGEMENT
POLICY AND ADVOCACY
As a consortium of volunteer-involving organizations (VIOs) in the Philippines, PhilCV (through its Committee on Advocacy and Policy - CAP) seats in a Committee of People’s Participation – House of Representatives to influence volunteer-related policies. We also renewed partnership with the Philippine National Service Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA) to establish relationship between PhilCV and PNVSCA in promoting wider participation of volunteers and VIOs in the national and local development and to enhance partnership in securing and valuing recognition of volunteers, volunteer managers and VIOs in development.
PhilCV also took part in crafting of the Global Standard for Volunteering for Development, through the FORUM’s Standard Working Group we were invited to host the Consultation Workshop on Global Standard for Volunteering for Development in in the Philippines in 2018 which could serve as our guide in lobbying a local volunteering standard, likewise in developing systems/guidelines (for compliance) or in providing capacity-building initiatives for the volunteering for development.
Our work also includes submission of position papers (on existing House Bills and/or policies in national volunteering) in coordination/collaboration with members or partners such as PNVSCA, AF, etc.
