Fully Funded 1 Year long Volunteering Program in Italy
Volunteers will collaborate with the staff of nursing homes mainly with recreational and entertainment activities planned for the elderly.
In particular volunteers will be involved in the following activities:
Please bear in mind that you will work with elderly people and that they may not be as autonomous as you could imagine. Some of them have Alzheimer or other illnesses.
Volunteers will have the opportunity to be involved in parallel activities together with other volunteers hosted in other receiving organizations coordinated by InCo. The topic of the parallel activities will change according to the project. (Making games, organising events, exhibitions, etc.)
Food and accommodation
You will get free accommodation for the whole duration of your voluntary service. You will live in a single room with shared bathroom, laundry facilities and a fully equipped kitchen with cooking facilities. You will share the apartment with other volunteers, never with the elderly. Indeed, if the room is inside the nursing home “Villa Serena” (close to the city center and the Talvera river), it is at the last floor totally separated from the floors where elderlies are hosted and doing activities.
During working days, you will eat your lunch in the canteen of the elderly home / disabled people centre where you work together with the staff. The other meals and during the weekends (or free days if you decide to stay in Bolzano), you have the possibility to eat in the canteen of the nursing home where you live. In any case you will receive a food allowance to cover the expenses linked to meal for dinner, holidays and weekend.
Requirements to participate
You need to be aged between 18 and 30 years old and you should preferably be an EU citizen.
You don’t need any previous experience or training in order to become a volunteer and carry on your activities in ASSB. Just be curious, open-minded and highly motivated!
