The 3 European volunteers will be hosted in the local area of Padova , in Xena, and respectively for 6 and 9 months. During their period in Italy they will help the H.O. in the activities that associations runs in the field of work with youth and social activities.
Their presence will be of great help for the added value that they will bring in the activities, new ideas and new projects they will help to realize and for the fact that will create the possibility of confrontation within the institutions , both with staff and users.
At the same time this will be for they a great opportunity to live an intercultural experience abroad , a possibility of personal development and professional formation in terms of experiences and new competences that will be useful also in professional field to give they more chances to find a job later.
The volunteers have different profiles, both for age and objectives, Silvia e Greta are the youngsters , are 22 and23 years old, and even if they come from different fields they have a strong interest for the social sector, even if they don’t have international experiences in this sector. Both are trying to understand how to continue their training process after the end of university and which job possibility they will have , especially in Spain where the opportunity in the labor market for youngsters are really few.
