olunteer Training Program was initiated to provide an opportunity for young Cambodian to not only get involved in volunteerism but to also to take collective actions to address issues that they think matter to their communities. 20 active volunteers were recruited to join a threefull-day intensive training program, which would equip them with knowledge and skills in project management. The program also aimed at unlocking the participants’ potential and leadership skills, as they were required to put together a project idea after the end of the training and implement it if they would win. Participants were formed into four groups, and paired with FUSAAC alumni members who have experiences in project management and implementation in the past years as mentors and mentees to sharpen and polish their project ideas.

One month after the end of the training, the participants would submit their project proposal, and made a presentation to the selection committee that consisted of FUSAAC senior alumni members. Two project ideas were selected and provided with a small grant to kick start. The three-day training consisted of professional volunteerism training, soft skill cultivation, project proposal writing and opportunity to pitch for small grant, for their own initiative project. The two winning team will work closely with FUSAAC mentors to execute their project in 2016.
