Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for volunteer for an European Voluntary Service placement called “Villacidro: cooperation and solidarity with the European Voluntary Service” for 8 months, which will take place from February 2019 – September 2019 in Sardinia, Italy.
Volunteer will work together with Social Service of the City of Villacidro.
Villacidro is a town of over 14,000 inhabitants in the province of the Middle Campidano and, along with Sanluri, is its capital. It is located about 50 km from Cagliari and 60 km from Oristano, and is located in the center of Campidano, on the eastern slopes of the mountain range of Monte Linas.
The territory of Villacidro is characterized by large forests, mountain ranges, numerous sources that generate many streams, rivers, waterfalls, mostly seasonal.
The activities of the Social Service of the City of Villacidro where volunteers can be inserted are different and offer various opportunities for learning and personal development. In particular
SERVICES FOR YOUTH – Volunteers will gain specific skills related to the ability to plan, activate and update a youth information space. Each volunteer will in fact be involved in the activities of the “Informagiovani of Villacidro” in charge of assessing the demand and supply of labor for the local students; providing information and guidance to the choices of study / education paths; collecting information on scholarships, postgraduate courses and further education, professional courses, study, work and volunteering abroad opportunities.
SERVICES FOR THE ELDERLY – Volunteers will support the animators of the home for the elderly. The people living in it have different health situations and, above all, have different personal stories. The volunteers will be involved in the activities of collective animation.
SERVICES FOR KIDS – Volunteers, in agreement with the school management of Villacidro will implement specific activities of “intercultural encounter” addressed to the students.
Volunteers could also plan, in agreement with the team of Social Services, the specific activity of their initiative that will take place, on a weekly or biweekly, at the public library, the multimedia library or in collaboration with the Municipal Music School.
Volunteers will be involved in the activity for a time of about 30 hours a week with the availability of free weekend, except for rare previously agreed exceptions in case of specific events and which will be of course balanced by free weekdays afterwards.
