Activity description

We are an NPO from the small town of Tramonti in the rural and mountainous area of the Amalfi Coast, working for the regeneration of the local environment and local cultural heritage. The project will include NATURAL BUILDING and PERMACULTURE. You will be part of our community, build natural buildings, support for the local family farmers (including working in food conservation and food traditions) in Tramonti (including working with wood, cleaning of hiking paths and more), Social media account management, English teaching and text writing, and Sustainability workshops for recycling and reusing. You will stay for 6-8 months in our community in Tramonti and get to know local activities and environmental projects and learn how to be part in them. NOTE: In exceptional cases we can also host a short-term opportunity for up to 2 months.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The accommodation will be arranged in a shared apartment with other young people in Tramonti. Rooms are shared. This apartment will be in a reasonable distance to the office and the working places. All basic furniture and objects will be provided for. A set of rules are established for the accommodation and we expect volunteers to respect them. Food will be done partly in supply, partly in food budget.

Training during the activity

Participants will have an introduction to the tasks, projects and responsibilities they undertake. The variety of activities during the year will allow participant to experience more activities instead of having to do repetitive tasks for 12 months. We will arrange a personal learning plan for you and you will be introduced and accompanied by both your supervisor and your mentor. Other specific training opportunities will depend on the responsibilities of the participant.
