Place: Savona, Italy.
The host organization works in several sectors , with clients in the Province of Savona. It consists of about 210 members mostly women and young graduates, is deeply rooted in its territory and open to Europe .We think that our cooperative, which manages more than sixty services distributed in the province, could represent a good opportunity for learning and skills acquisition for young European volunteers.
– TO PROMOTE THE SOCIAL INCLUSION of people who are in a state of social exclusion such as migrants, refugees and those who are in situations of serious marginality.
– COMBATING YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT: offering volunteers a long-term experience not only formative from the human point of view and personal growth, but also professionally qualified, useful to young people who want to find employment In the fields of social policies, cultural mediation, social cooperation.
– ENCOURAGING MULTILINGUALISM: through specific courses of learning the Italian language and, as a natural consequence of their living a year together and the activities envisaged by the project, of learning the participants of other European languages.
Wwith VOLUNTEERS FOR SOCIAL INCLUSION the focus of the project will be to offer to volunteers training and technical experiences to learn directly a valid working methodology in the field of the reception of migrants and people in a situation of poverty and social marginalization. The teams are formed by a coordinator (tutor) and six social workers. European volunteers will be able to play the role of support to operators in the reception phases (distribution of clothing, foodstuffs, accompaniment to socio-sanitary services), construction of relationships and knowledge of the people hosted and Social inclusion Activities (music labs, art therapy, language learning, sports activities).
Volunteers will tell about their experience in high school meetings. Methodology used for the realization of the project: The learning method that we will use is «learning by doing», that is to put in the condition the volunteers to learn directly on the field.
The volunteers will live in a flat (or in a new apartment) situated in the city center of Savona.
The places of work in Savona are easily reachable by foot, those in the other towns by public transport. The cooperative will provide for Italian language training, pocket money, food and reimbursement of expenses for transport or will arrange the necessary transfers. It’s possibly that we asked volunteer to share room with other volunteers hosted in the project. Volunteers will have the opportunity to live together, experiencing a true multi-cultural coexistence, and will establish rules of living together and find solutions acceptable to all of cohabitation.
