Title: Volunteering Project Italy
Description of the Project:
“Radio Network” is a long term project which will take place in Belluno (Italy) from summer 2019 to summer 2020. It aims at creating a positive working environment and atmosphere where the volunteer can develop his/herself and acquiring new skills and competences. The project will stimulate and encourage youngsters to be active citizens. During their service at Comitato d’Intesa, volunteers will have the opportunity to implement activities such as:
support the daily tasks and events of the hosting organization, working with different target groups, such as local community, young people and volunteers;
present the ESC and the ERASMUS+ programme, collaborating with the hosting organization, writing blog articles, which will be shared online on the official organization’s website, and on the official social network channels, as well as realizing specific videos which will be upload on the organization’s Youtube Channel called CSVlog Belluno;
writing an article about a new and different topic every week, searching information about it in different ways, which will be then shared on the website and social media of the association;
making a radio spot about a new and different topic every week, which can be either in English or in another language;
collaborating with local and European radio broadcasting channels, realizing different radio spots or programs, whose topic and aims will be subsequently decided together with the radio channels;
making videos or taking pictures that can be used to promote or to raise awareness about a new and different topic every week;
making interviews in the city about a new and different topic every week, conducting specific surveys, which can be useful material for the article or the radio spot.
Through its actions, the project wants to:
Promote volunteerism as an added value for the youth and for the society;
