Competentietoolkit - Competentieontwikkeling van jonge vrijwilligers in de sport

This competence toolkit aims at supporting social sport practices in their attempt to develop (socially vulnerable) youngsters’ competences through taking engagement in sport. It collects different instruments, ranging from practical instruments and instruction manuals to substantive methodologies and an online application. Initially, this competence toolkit is aimed at social sport practices throughout Flanders, and is therefore only available in Dutch. However, we explore the possibility to develop an English version.
