Strauss has always promoted the exchange of experiences between young people and we believe
this is much more profitable if it occurs between individuals of different country and culture. Mutual
understanding, intercultural dialogue and tolerance are essential ingredients for us to allow a
community to grow and improve; for these reasons we work with the Erasmus+ Programme and its
European Voluntary Service, the which objectives meet perfectly with ours, and continue to provide
opportunities to young people who otherwise would not have any.
1. What are the activities for the volunteers?
Anticorpi di Solidarietà
The core of the activities has been designed to develop over 4 project phases, aimed at firstly outlining the needs of the target groups involved, in terms of the contribution of solidarity as a barrier to violence and therefore to develop them as concrete tools able to contrast to the different forms of violence. Wanting to follow a medical-scientific metaphor, the 4 phases can be summarized in the term “In Vitro”, since they will be a way to examine case studies and laboratory tests that later will become real Solidarity antibodies (Anticorpi di Solidarietà), from which the title of the project proposal. The research will be cut on the individual groups involved which will be addressed by the activities, also using the contribution of those local stakeholders who have a daily contact with the target groups. The research will be followed by activities aimed at sensitizing the target groups first and the whole local community then, such as workshops, meetings and seminars that will spread the idea behind the proposal.
Tabulè: Living Tables, Sharing Cultures
During the 10 months of service, the volunteer will have the opportunity both to explore the Sicilian culture and tradition and to make known the ones of their home country, bringing the mix of cultures to become a flywheel of solidarity and opportunity for personal growth and professional. The activities of the project will ensure the development of different skills, the use of different tools and the growth of the local community, through the implementation of workshops, the creation and sharing of content on different social networks, meetings with different actors from the local Mussomeli community, activities with the teaching staff and the student body of schools.
