NIF is an organization largely based on volunteering. In Norway, volunteer work accounts for the equivalent of 115,000 full time positions; half of the Norwegian population participates in volunteering annually, which is the highest percentage in the world. Various opportunities to participate are available to suit individual preferences.
Dugnad is a mutually beneficial volunteering exchange that constitutes a very important resource for sport teams. Clubs or groups with a cause to fund can perform volunteer work in exchange for financial support. Dugnad should be considered social, fun, and voluntary for a good cause.
Møre og Romsdal Idrettskrets wishes to implement Youth Networks throughout the regions of Nordmøre and Sunnmøre. These groups are aimed toward engaged youths with the intention of creating fellowship, understanding, and networking opportunities. Various meetings allow youngsters to be major contributors in upcoming sport-related events.
