Activity description

Don Bosco Fulpmes offers students of the HTL Fulpmes a temporary home for mechanical engineering. The house offers a lot to really feel at home and to master school: super food, learning coaching, competent guidance and many leisure activities. Currently, 150 young people live in the dormitory during the week and 25 more students from the surrounding area take advantage of the daily learning coaching in the evening. In the institution is also located a youth centre for youngsters between 12 and 16 years. It is open every Friday and Saturday and offers a lot of free time activities. Don Bosco Volunteers offers many volunteering opportunities. The target group are especially kids and youngsters. Volunteers of the European Solidarity Corps contribute their youthful dynamics and they are positively present and close to kids and youngsters. Their presence opens a space for mutual learning processes and underlines the European idea.
