InCo would like to submit a project involving receiving organizations dealing with the issue of social inclusion! Available placements are listed below with some details about the profile requested. They are all long-term projects (meaning activities lasting more than 6 months).


Please check specific details about each Receiving Organization (link to the EVS database directly on the name of each organization):

Azienda Servizi Sociali Bolzano  (ASSB): 2 vacancies available; starting date April 2016, for 12 months. Bolzano is a bilingual city (Italian and German are official languages and used in everyday life). Activities with elderly people.

Civica di Trento:  2 vacancies available; starting date April 2016, for 12 months. Project located inTrento. Activities with elderly people.

Centro Trentino Solidarietà : 2 vacancies available, starting date April 2016, for 6 months. Project located inTrentino and dealing with people facing addiction problems and offering assistance to people with AIDS.

The project foresees parallel activities involving volunteers from the 3 Receiving Organizations in activities to implement together. The specific activities will be chosen together with the candidates in agreement with the receiving organizations. Activities could be for example: raising awareness regarding the issue of social exclusion and promoting the social inclusion of people facing difficulties because of economic, social, addiction or age reasons, sustainable development since each organization has a garden, etc.


ATTENTION regarding activities with elderly people: please consider that it's not the same as spending an afternoon with your grandmother! It's a very beautiful project and there is space to develop own ideas andinitiatives but the life of elderly people also involves sometimes loneliness, illness, dementia and death (so you have to be open an prepared to this).
