EVS in Acireale (Italy)

9 months cultural and environmental Evs project in Acireale-Sicily

Project description

The EVS project “Mistero Buffo” involves activities related to:
Art and culture: artistic workshops, movie events, library, theatre, music room, foreign languages, music and theatre events and support to the international short film festival Magma;
Environment: enviromental and education projects in primary schools and middle schools, management of a touristic centre in the natural reserve “La Timpa”;
Immigration and cultural diversity: intercultural learning (Italian language course for immigrants, intercultural theatre workshop, intercultural meetings and parties, English conversation club, cinema events in original language),
Promotion of European youth mobility: promotional activities of European mobility opportunities and Evs.
We will host two volunteers for 9 months.
Furthermore, the volunteers will be invited to propose and develop personal projects and this possibility to run their own projects will be a key factor for this learning path.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The two volunteers will have their double room in a shared apartment equipped with all common facilities (kitchen, washing machine, bathroom, wifi connection…). The house is located in the historical centre of the town and it is few minutes by walk far from Mistero Buffo office.

Training during the project

The volunteers will have the opportunity of doing two trainings organised by Italian Youth National Agency
-on-arrival training
-mid-term evalutation
The receiving organisation also provides mentorship, italian course and also weekly evaluation meetings with the volunteers of Mistero Buffo.

Volunteer profile

We would like to host volunteers who demonstrate a strong interest for the main themes of the project to spend nine months in a very active cultural centre in a town with a poor cultural life and with a passion for environment since part of the service will be dedicated to promote the close natural reserve La timpa.
