nCo is very glad to announce that from now on we are coordinanting another EVS project. This time in our own city: Trento!!! (which allow us to be in a very close contact with the volunteers!)
InCo have been collaborating with "Opera Universitaria di Trento" regarding other kind of youth exchanges and now they decided to count with our support also with EVS (activity that they could not manage anymore alone or with the support of the Municipality, as it happened before).
So we are opening a new selection process: 2 vacancies from February to July/August 2011 (6 months), regarding young people with different kinds of handicap (usually students from the university) as well as activities regarding the promotion (communication) of free-time and cultural events and initiatives of the university (website, flyers, database, general support, etc.)
You can read the information available in the EVS database:http://ec.europa.eu/youth/evs/aod/hei_form_en.cfm?EID=42000597901
It's important that the volunteers is mature(environment inside the university) and have openess and patience with handicapped people.
Previous knowledge of Italian is not mandatory. Some knowledge of English would be important in order to allow the volunteer to comunicate in the beginning. No special skills are required but initiative, willingness to get in touch with people and some creativeness would be quite useful!
Trento is a small city (100.000 inhabitants) but it's the capital of the region (Trentino). It's one of the cities with the higher life quality in Italy (but it's North Italy! we are in the middle of the mountains and not in Rome or Sicily ;-) It's not a bilingual city (as Bolzano, for example). Trento University is very well known (one of the best in Italy).
Time is short (as always), so please let me know about your candidates until maximum the 19th October. I'll need a CV and motivation letter (the most important thing!) in which the volunteer explains:
- why s/he would like to do a EVS
- why this project
- which are the difficulties s/he think s/he will face
- what s/he expect to learn
- how s/he think s/he could contribute with the project/HO
The organisation intends to apply in 1st November deadline to the Italian national Agency
