We will use a proactive methodology stimulating curiosity and a dynamic approach.

Cooperativa  will be responsible for the coordination of the whole project and for the distribution of the grant in line with partners’ responsibilities. On arrival the volunteers will attend the welcoming sessions at our organisation, we foresee meetings in the first 2 weeks, so to gradually introduce them to the new situation and place, facilitate their integration in the new context, and leave him time to get accustomed to the new life-style.

At Cooperative Poiesis the volunteers will turn in 2 different services:

1. DAY CENTER, where the minors, reported by child protection, from 12 to 18 years old, are placed in this location to be helped to overcome their personal problems or family problems, facilitating their integration in the territory.

2. COMMUNITY, is addressed only to female minors, reported by a court decree, from 12 to 18 years old, who permantly live in this location 24/24 hours and sometimes they visit their family in the weekend.

Activities

Poiesis will progressively give to the volunteers an overall view of the whole range of activities of the host organisation, and will introduce them to people involved, staff and users.

In general the volunteer’s role will be of support to the minors during their homeworks, organizing workshops, facilitating socialisation and integration activities inside and outside the centres, to help the educators during daily moments (which means also supervision during the meals, tidying up of the dining rooms before and after lunch). In additional to this, in the female Community, the volunteers will help the educators to accompany the minors in their activity outside the center.

After a first period of adaptation, the responsible person will decide together with the volunteers which activities are fitter for them to implement.

Accomodation

The volunteers will be hosted in a flat provided by cooperative Poiesis and settled in Gonzaga, in the same area of the community and of the day center. The flat has 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room and a bathroom; the flat will be shared between the 2 volunteers. The rules of the flat will be presented on arrival.

The volunteers can go by foot to work because the 2 services, run by Cooperative Poiesis, are in the same building of the residence, while travel costs for free time will be at their expense. On the occasion of the supervision meetings in Mantova, in case the volunteers travels by train or bus they will be reimbursed.
