We work for the social integration of people living in uneasiness and social marginalization with special attention to people involved in prostitution, victims of trafficking in human beings for sexual or labour exploitation, minors and young adults in specific conditions of vulnerability. The proposed activities for the volunteers will mainly be directed to the minors hosted in our residential care house. The volunteers will primarily support the educators’ job with unaccompanied minors, victims of human trafficking, minors who committed juvenile penalties and vulnerable minors with: the creation of an environment where it is possible to build social ties and relationships based on respect, sharing and legality, domestic activities such as cooking, cleaning and management of the rules within the house, accompaniment to autonomy of the beneficiaries, accompaniment to social-health services, organization of workshops, orientation and support for research and work placement.
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
The volunteer will live in a shared flat in Padova with other international volunteers or local/Italian people, will live in a single or double room upon availability and have the use of a kitchen, bathroom and of the common spaces of the house (wi-fi is not always guaranteed). He/She will monthly receive some money to buy food and the pocket money. He/She will have a bus card to move around in the city.
TRAINING DURING THE ACTIVITY
A part from the OLS provided by the program, we will offer internal Italian course and help
the volunteer to find an integrative Italian language course in Padova, if needed. The volunteer will receive specific training about the topic of integration of refugees and related topics (educative relationship and educative projects, team working, mediation of conflicts, participative tools).
We would appreciate candidates who are already involved in the topic speak at least a basic Italian, but especially motivated to take part and available in the given dates. Please note that the activities will take place in a proper house working 24/7, several people support the activities and daily chores of the house: volunteers will work 7 hours a day/5 days per week in shifts, so please consider that you will be likely working many weekends (of course getting other 2 days of rest during the following week) and on holidays as well.
