Casa Emmaus Association

Iglesias, Italy

Activity description

Casa Emmaus Association is based on the value of solidarity and has as its mission the reception, assistance, therapy, rehabilitation of those, minors and adults, who live in serious situations of hardship, social marginality, pathological dependence, and psychiatric pathologies. "Get Up Stand Up" project arises, on the one hand, from the need to diversify the offer for young users of Community La Tenda, offering them greater opportunities for inclusion, training, growth, and rehabilitation, and, on the other hand, from the desire to offer young Europeans stimulating experiences of engagement, learning, active citizenship and life that facilitate their personal, educational, social, civic and professional development and, consequently, their employability.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

Board and lodging (rent + bills) will be provided and paid by the hosting organization. Participants will have their rooms and common spaces to share as (kitchen, hall, bathroom). The volunteers will receive monthly Food Money + Pocket Money of a total amount of 300 euros. More, the volunteers will have the possibility, during the working week, to have their lunch ensured at their working place. Each participant will receive the reimbursement of the travel costs according to distance and Erasmus+ rules. The volunteers will be given bicycles for everyday use.

Training during the activity

The hosting organization will ensure the participation of volunteers in the on-arrival and mid-term training activities carried out by the Italian National Agency. During the activities inside the La Tenda community, the volunteers will be assisted and supported by experienced psychologists and professional staff.

Participant profile

An ideal volunteer is a motivated person, cheerful, and sensitive to the issue of social inclusion. Because of the vulnerability of the young people hosted at the La Tenda structure, the strong predisposition to interpersonal relationships, empathy, and the ability to adapt to new situations will be positively evaluated.
