1 volunteer from French will be hsted in Xena for 6 months, Two volunteers coming from Spain will be hosted in the association Mimosa (Padua) for 12 and 9 months, 1 volunteer from French will hosted from cooperative Angoli di Mondo for 8 months and Ture Nirvane (Ventimiglia, IM) will host two volunteers from French and Russia for 3 months. During their stay in Italy they will support the host organizations with activities in the youth, social and cultural field, in contrast with social exclusion and marginalization and for the exchange of best practice in the topic of sustainability and health.. Their participation will be very helpful because of the added value they will bring to the organizations’ activities, with the new ideas and new projects they will be able to develop, and with the intercultural dialogue opportunities that will occur in the associations, both with the operators as well as with other volunteers and users.This will be a good opportunity to live an intercultural life experience in another country, and also as a personal growth and learning experience for what regards new competences that will be useful in the professional field too, allowing them to have more opportunities in the job search.The volunteers have different profiles for what regards their aims and background. Robin, Hayma, Angel , Coralise, Kinga and Ekaterina will have the opportunity to integrate aspects related to their interests and education with the practical experience. Robin will be involved principally in cultural activities and active participation activiites in Xena, but at the same time will realize activities related with intercultural learning and promotion of evs. Hayma e Angel will support Mimosa in activiites with unaccompanied foreign minors and asylum seekers in recovery activities in degraded areas of the city of Padua and sensitization about gender questions. Kinga and Ekaterina in Ture Nirvane will increase their skills in the topic of healthy way of life, ecological ways and cultural events. Coralise in Angolid i Mondo cooperative will help in activities related with fair trade and workshop in schools. For all the volunteers this opportunity will be important for what regards their training, gaining new competences and more experience for their vocational understanding of what to do in the future. We think that the project will have a long term positive impact firstly for the volunteers themselves, for what regards their personal growth and the competences acquired, also in perspective of their future employability. At the same time the hosting organizations will gain positive impact too as in the past years they have hosted volunteers with very positive results. The local community will also gain from this experience, especially among the youngsters that will have the opportunity to confront with young people from other countries and speak foreign languages. They will also get in contact with the opportunities offered by the Erasmus+ program such as the European Voluntary Service and so they will be able to participate in them in the future.
