Hosting Organization: VulcanicaMente http://www.vulcanicamente.it



“Love in Action” is a volunteering project based on the concept of spreading love, kindness and care by creating valuable local and international actions in order to fight hate speech, bullying, cyber bullying and racism. Volunteers will support VulcanicaMente in international and local activities, being fully involved and becoming active citizens while creating campaigns and local and international initiatives of their own to raise awareness about these topics.



Lecce is a beautiful baroque style city in the very south of Italy, in the region of Apulia. More precisely, it is situated in Salento that is surrounded by incredible seaside and beautiful natural sights. Salento is rich in culture and you can ride a bike all year round.


Profile of the volunteer:

  • Aged 18-30
  • have a good motivation to learn and support VulcanicaMente activities and be interested in the project topic
  • be interested in non-formal education and willing to work in a dynamic team
  • interested in learning more about mindfulness
  • be open-minded and respectful towards other people, space and cultures
  • be creative and be proactive by proposing personal projects and ideas
  • be eco-friendly and bike-friendly


Activities of the volunteer:

VulcanicaMente works at international and local level, so the volunteers will support local initiatives and European projects. We believe that volunteering is a lifestyle. It offers many great opportunities to share, but also to learn! It requires one ́s dedication, initiative and motivation, but it always pays off. It is totally worth it.

Our organisation is based in Lecce and soon also in San Cesario di Lecce. Volunteers will get the experience of working in both towns, having a chance to explore the Italian NGO activities in two different contexts.
