European Voluntary
Service
>
Strategic Partnership Project “Trusted Badge Systems”
Welcome to the badge world! This a step-by-step guide which
will prepare you for using Open digital badges to recognise
learning and work of Mentors for European Voluntary Service
ABOUT OPEN BADGES
∎ Open Badges is a worldwide standard to validate and
recognise learning that happens anywhere. They are visual
representation of learning and achievements.
∎ Badges are digital and thus create new possibilities to
manage achievements: store, share and display them
anywhere on the web and include on CV.
∎ Find out more about Open Badges
/ INTRODUCTION
Trusted Badge Systems
∎ This system has been developed with organisation, usually
implementing group EVS project with approx. 10 volunteers
and 7-8 mentors. Therefore badges for the systematic work
are a lot based on mentors’ training and colleague support.
∎ Badges for self-development can be used in projects with
any number of volunteers. There are no levels, mentors can
earn any badge whenever one is matching the criteria.
Meta-badges are unlocked when all badges of that
competence are earned.

CONTENT OF BADGES★
∎ Badges have quite generic descriptions, making the
system easily adaptable to any EVS project.
∎ However, you might wish to add specific details about
your EVS project, dates, places, etc.
∎ “Systematic work” badges are based on a practice
where Mentors have introductory training, mid-term
training and final evaluation. They also have periodic
meetings with EVS project coordinator as well as
meetings just among mentors. Check if badge criteria
are matching with your organisation practices. Trusted Badge
Go to Projects/Badges to
