Opportunity for one young Macedonian to be a European Volunteer in Italy
ALDA Skopje is looking for one Macedonian youngster (18-30 years) to be volunteer in Vicenza, Italy. Within the project #Welcome, the Italian organisation Insieme cooperativa sociale ONLUS will host one European volunteer from Macedonia for one year from July 2016.
- Youth field: promotion of Youth projects, like the Social Day project, to raise awareness of young people about volunteering (www.socialday.org); and the Human Library project (www.humanlibrary.org). These activities are run in cooperation with schools.
- Social Bar: the Cooperative manages a social bar to improve its links with the local community with themed evening, and cultural events promoting sustainable development. The volunteer can propose initiatives to make the bar more original (i.e. organising concerts, art exhibitions, reading, cultural events, workshops, etc.). The volunteer will also help the Staff members of the bar to prepare the daily lunches for all the colleagues.
- Reconditioning of goods: the Cooperative reclaims used goods to be inserted in the market, part of them needs a “handcraft intervention”, to give them new life (furniture and wood objects restoration, textile laboratory, etc.). The volunteer will learn manufacturing techniques, and will work with disadvantaged people. Furthermore, the volunteer will get the satisfaction to see his/her works on sale in the Cooperative shop!
- Pensiero unico: the volunteer will help the staff members by setting up the second hand shop to make it appealing, proposing and arranging thematic exhibitions (i.e. “toys”, “books”, etc.), following the whole process of items, from the delivery of a citizen to the final sale, creating activities in the children area, participating in the promotional events and workshops, etc.
