I decided to participate in CESIE “Mapping Solidarity” project to make a positive contribution to significant projects by using the skills I gained in my previous experiences.

Young graduate of a Master’s Degree in Cooperation Projects Engineering I’m willing to develop my intercultural and project management skills. I think that ESC volunteering is a great opportunity to live and work in another country. It also allows to discover another culture, meet people from different countries and consolidate a professional project. Beyond professional contribution, I think that living in Palermo will significantly impact my lifestyle and the way I see the world.

Since May I have started my volunteering activities from distance. I work with project managers from different backgrounds and learn from their expertise. With their help, I am currently contributing to the writing and implementation of two projects for young people, youth workers and teachers. The first project is about social inclusion and global citizenship, the second one is about post-conflict reconciliation.

Working on different themes is enriching and it already has a positive impact on my professional and personal skills. Coming to Palermo in July and being able to continue the work in a beautiful environment and to see the project results will be very interesting.
