from first week of December 2015 to 30 November 2016 (12 months) in Palermo, Italy.

Those interested will also have the possibility to actually volunteer in local youth centres for teenagers and kids or in supporting local Eurodesk Infopoint.
We are looking for a volunteer who is open-minded, who is not willing to do EVS just to have fun in a sunny country and who is willing to learn aspects of the life/environment/projects of an NGO working with and for young people.
We need volunteer who is flexible about time management but still able to fulfil in due time assigned tasks.
Previous experience in international voluntary sectors (workcamps) is a plus but not a must.
Basic knowledge of Italian language will facilitate volunteers in their life and work.
Building Bridges Association members will have preference, please enroll to the association here.
We will study carefully all application and selected candidates will be invite for Skype interview. The selection of volunteers will take place in the middle of September.
For the selection of the volunteers we will need:
– Europass CV with picture (made in the last month)
– Motivational letter, writing that your sending organisation will be “Building Bridges”. We ask all candidates to send a specific letter of motivation – why they want to volunteer with us rather than just a general EVS one.
Remember to write in the motivation letter that your sending institution is “Asociación Building Bridges”.
