We are seeking young people to involve in the European Voluntary Service through the project Shared Voluntary Trials, giving the opportunity to develop and reinforce your transversal skills and key competences, working in our operative office in the centre of Palermo.

The mobility opportunity is open for 2 young volunteers one from Bulgaria and one from Greece, who would like to have an enriching learning experience in project management in a multicultural and dynamic work environment.

During the programme the volunteers will be involved in the following activities supported by a team of experts:

  • Preparation and training: pre-departure preparation and training of participants in European and international mobility projects.
  • Project writing: from the reading and analysis of calls for proposals to the finalisation and submission of an application form, in compliance with provisions of each specific call.

The volunteers will also have the chance:

  • to develop team work competences;

  • to improve competences in the field of non-formal education and in the management of groups.

They will gain knowledge of European programmes, calls and policies, especially those relevant to lifelong education and non-formal learning.
