Activity description

MAPPING SOLIDARITY is a 8 months European Solidarity Corps project, addressed to young people coming from different countries. The project promotes social inclusion, equal opportunities and solidarity values, by involving young volunteers in the preparation, development and implementation of non-formal educational activities on different topics (such as citizenship, sport, arts, culture, food, young entrepreneurship, human rights etc) for young people (kids, people in needs, migrants, disabled people, NEETs ecc.) implemented by CESIE and its local network (associations that provide services for kids, people in need, migrants and disabled people). Each volunteer will be involved for 30-35 hours per week (from Monday to Friday). We are looking for volunteers to start the project from November 2022 to June 2023.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

CESIE will provide accommodation for all the ESC volunteers. They will be hosted in an apartment located in a city center in Palermo and they will share the room with another volunteer of the same gender. The costs of meals are covered by CESIE. Most of the local organisations that volunteers will implement their activities are located in the city center. In the case of far distances, CESIE will cover the costs for public transportation.

Training during the activity

Upon their arrival, each volunteer will take part in an on-arrival training provided by CESIE in Palermo. Volunteers participating in the long-term volunteering service will take part in an on-arrival training and mid-term evaluation provided by Italian National Agency. Moreover, volunteers will also have the opportunities to participate in a mid-term evaluation with CESIE. They will also have the opportunity to attend an online linguistic course and in case 40 hours of optional Italian language course in Palermo at the Italian language institute.
