Because of the SARS- Cov- 2 emergency situation all incoming volunteers need to do a PCR test 48 hours before arrival in Italy.

Community and social work placements

Living and working in a community means to be deeply involved in the work carried out, as well as in local culture and it offers you the great opportunity to learn something concrete and useful for your future. At the end of your experience in Italy you will become more independent and open-minded and ready to learn from the new situations. In addition you will have the chance to be deeply submerged into the real Italian lifestyle, by meeting and talking to local people. Volunteering inĀ  this way means experiencing our culture from a new and enriching point of view .
