Nayef al-Shahrani, president of Tamm Volunteer Network, said that the network aspires to contribute to the development of youth volunteers so they play a role in the service of the community. 
“The aim of these workshops is to promote volunteer work by preparing and training young people to provide technical support and promote capacity building in order to cater to the needs of volunteer work and activities.
“The workshop on “Dealing with Dignitaries” will introduce volunteers to the basics of protocol, the art of dealing with dignitaries, the qualities of volunteer ushers and stewards, effective communication skills, body language as well as practical exercises.
“The second workshop on managing and organising volunteering events and activities aim at introducing volunteers to the art and skills of organising volunteering events and activities; planning, producing and executing events through specialised committees; developing communication and marketing skills; and practical training for planning, monitoring and assessing events,” al-Shahrani added.
Tamm is co-founded by the Social Development Centre (Nama), Silatech, Education Above All through Reach out to Asia, and the strategic partner the Ministry of Transport and Communications.
Tamm was established to promote a shared vision and joint action towards building an integrated volunteering system and a database of volunteers connecting entrepreneurs with establishments and volunteering opportunities across Qatar. It also offers technical support and builds youth capacities while catering to their needs and developing their skills.
