Do you have time and enthusiasm to offer? Take part in CELIM’s activities in Italy!
We have volunteers helping daily in our office, enabling us to carry on working as efficiently as possible; other volunteers regularly help our educators who operate in schools and in meeting centres; still others give us a hand now and again to organise stalls and information and fund-raising activities. And there are volunteers who, with their spirit of initiative, decide to organise awareness- and fund-raising events on their own territory, involving their network of acquaintances.
The Voluntary National Civil Service was created to promote among young Italian citizens the implementation of the constitutional principles of social solidarity, to actively help safeguarding and protecting our Country’s heritage and to contribute to civic, social, cultural and professional training.
FOCSIV and its Members offer young people aged between 18 and 29 the chance to live for 12 months a unique experience of growth and personal and professional enrichment, through which they can contribute, both nationally and internationally, to social cohesion and civil commitment processes.
Volunteers taking part in projects abroad work as ‘White helmets’ in areas of social conflict with the crucial task of preventing situations of human, cultural and economic distress. How? Through development-fostering activities aimed at creating peace, protecting human rights and overcoming the conditions of social injustice in many different project sectors, from the economic and managerial one to the socio-educational and the rural and environmental one.
For many years FOCSIV has been the main entity sending volunteers abroad.
By taking part in the implementation of projects in Italy, young people have the chance to learn about the problems of the territory, carry out awareness-raising activities and live experiences of civil value sharing.
To apply for the National Civil Service you have to wait for the opening of the call by the National Office for Civil Service.
The last call was closed on 30th June 2016.
The European Voluntary Service is an international volunteering experience funded by the European Commission aimed at all young people aged between 17 and 30 legally residing in Europe. The programme allows them to work as volunteers for an organisation or public entity in Europe and in the countries of the Euro-Mediterranean and Caucasian area for a minimum period of 2 weeks to 12 months.
CELIM is only a host organisation: to spend your EVS period at our premises in Milan you need to refer to the association Joint by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
