Activity description

The Center for disable people is located in Bologna, but it has many other locations also out of Bologna where volunteers might be asked to carry on activities. The volunteers will be mostly inserted in the socialising and integration activities for the users, such as the social-recreational activities of the centre, and the participation to the initiatives promoted by the territory. Besides, they are expected to work side by side with the staff members in some daily common activities (workshops, physical activity, external activities and special events, excursions…)

From Monday to Friday lunch will be provided by the disable center. Volunteer will receive the annual urban bus ticket
