This forum brought together volunteers and professionals from all over the world. I had the opportunity to meet people from some countries for the first time and learn about their cultures. Although four days passed very quickly, we learned much about essential topics from excellent presenters such as policymaking, diversity, equity and inclusion, and the protection of volunteers. Through listening to each other’s various volunteer experiences, we are even more aware of the value of volunteering for our community and personal development, which gave us an extra boost to continue volunteering and feel the excitement through every activity we do.
I was very impressed with the forum. The organizers did a great job of bringing in a diverse group of speakers who represented a range of organizations and causes. The lectures were also well-organized and provided valuable information and resources for those looking to get involved in volunteer work.
Overall, I would highly recommend HISA volunteer forum to anyone looking to get involved in their community and make a positive impact. It was a well-organized and inspiring event that left me feeling motivated and ready to get out there and make a difference.
The IVF 2022 was an incredible opportunity for which I am very grateful, I got to meet some amazing people from all over the world that shared the same passion for volunteering and also were as eager as I to learn and expand their horizons. This experience provided me with amazing insight on the work others are doing in their local community and how I can learn from them while at the same time I forged meaningful bonds that could become the foundation of long lasting friendships and pave the way for future collaborations.
IVF 2022 was very insightful and enjoyable. The sessions that took at the forum place were really informative and I will be taking what I’ve learnt with me into my future endeavors. Being surrounded by like-minded individuals who are keen on making a difference in the world was truly inspiring and made for an unforgettable experience!
The 2022 International Volunteer Forum was a wonderful experience. I was fascinated to see the passion of the other participants to share their experience and their work, to be heard and to defend their values. The activity corresponded exactly to allowing everyone to feel in their place, to feel important and valued. The Headway Institute of Strategic Alliance Planners aimed high with this program and they succeeded. I commend their leadership and their confidence in us. We are the young people of tomorrow, we are not waiting to be called upon in existing action plans, but we are already acting in our communities with and without support because we are aware of our responsibility to make this world a better place. We are committed to helping our loved ones, our communities and to allowing the future generation to be more reassured. I feel very honored to have been a fellow of this forum.
The IVF’22 was absolutely an impactful event organized by the HISA. It provided an opportunity to collaborate and deliberate on an international level. With progressive personalities invited as speakers, it was inspiring to listen and learn. My peers were an example of significant youth participation and the agenda definitely reflected upon possible betterments and that the time is now.
Had it not been for platforms like the IVF, we would never have the chance to listen to unheralded stories beyond our national border, and to realize these struggles have been recognized and already addressed by leaders at their 20s and 30s. While already having my small stories in the little town in Vietnam to be shared in the largest city in Turkey, I am deeply inspired and reminded by the action of my passionate fellows to not set a limit on my own capability to contribute to the lives of those unprivileged all over the world.
