Train volunteers, volunteer managers, and specialists in volunteering.
Develop mechanisms to help volunteers find appropriate volunteer opportunities and help the institutions that engage volunteers to recruit the volunteers they need.
Support and improve existing mechanisms and develop new ones for networking, sharing, collaboration, and mutual support among those who promote volunteering and engage volunteers in Lebanon.
Improve knowledge of volunteering by establishing a resource library, developing new resources, and engaging in research on volunteering.
Support programs of volunteering and community service in educational institutions of all levels from pre-school through university.
Assess the existing policy framework for volunteer activity and work to strengthen that framework across all concerned government agencies.
Identify, reward, and give public recognition to exemplary volunteers and volunteer initiatives.
