Participant profile

Red Cross promotes the values of inclusion, humanity and solidarity: the most important aspects will be motivation and desire to learn and develop themselves: this is an opportunity to enrich our local community and ourselves with the personality, the ideas and the cultures of the volunteers. We expect from the volunteers the desire to learn and express their potential. They have to be open and available to communicate and cooperate with other volunteers. They will be dealing with different target groups, mostly elderly, so we will ask them to be respectful, patient and not to discriminate.
